PFCS Royal Navy and Royal Marines HIVE Information Services support the Service communities and Chain of Command through the provision of up to date and relevant information

Churchill Centre

Government Services and Information

The HIVE Information Service is an information network available to all members of the Service community - serving personnel both married and single, together with their families and dependants as well as civilians employed by the Services.

Worldwide the HIVE Information Centres offer an extensive range of information on relocation, local unit and civilian facilities, places of interest, schools and further education, housing, healthcare facilities, employment and training opportunities.

Information on relocations is one of our key areas of information support and is available either in advance or on arrival at the receiving establishment.  We network worldwide, sourcing national and local information that is also of relevance to the uniqueness of Service life.

The Naval Service Personal Family Community Support RM and RN HIVE Information Officers are not trained in welfare counseling. They are however able to advise referral to those professional agencies best suited to the individual's circumstances. All HIVE staff are bound to a code of confidentiality.

We are proud that our service is recognised as the ‘Information Gateway’ and valued across the Armed Forces for its professional approach, initiative and commitment to you, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Service community.

For more details and to contact your nearest HIVE please visit RN HIVE Information Service or the RM HIVE Information Service pages.
