COVID 19 advice & support

The current situation in the UK, and internationally around the globe, is rightly causing much concern for all and we as Service Families are not exempt from this. As we are now in the Delay phase this will impact the Naval Service; both personally and professionally.  Your loved one has been asked to consider in detail, and mitigate where possible, the impact that this may have on you and your family.

To increase support, we will be communicating regularly with you as families and want to ensure you are gaining the support and information you require.
