Naval Service Family and People Support Launch Events
ROYAL Navy Royal Marines Welfare has been rebranded as part of the Royal Navy’s Transformation Change Agenda.
The new Naval Service Family and People Support (NS FPS) continues to keep sailors, marines and their families as their top priority.
Since 1977, the RNRMW has been looking after the wellbeing of the serving members of the Naval Service and their families, wherever they live in UK and Overseas.
And over the years, it has grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of our people and the operational capability requirements of our Fleet. The combined workforce of civilian and military staff boasts a range of qualifications, skills and experience; well versed in agility and coping in pressured circumstances.
Changing the name from RNRMW to NS FPS comes firmly in line with Second Sea Lord Vice-Admiral Nick Hine’s drive to modernise, mobilise and transform Navy Command so ensuring its readiness to deal with the challenges of the future.
“Too often it is difficult to identify what an organisation does and who you need to speak to through their title. Therefore, we have changed the name to Naval Service Family and People Support to say ‘what it does on the tin’ and make it easier to identify the valued information, community and casework services provided for all our people” said 2SL.
Extensive work is underway by a dedicated team in NS FPS to ensure the name change is rolled out to the Naval Service by September 30. The intention is to hold a name change ceremony in Navy Command HQ on 27 Sep 19 from 1000 -1100 with local establishment Command events taking place at the same time, and area community events taking place on Monday 30th September from 1600 - 1800. (Tuesday 1st October 13.00 - 15.00 Scotland Areas)
These events are intended to bring prominence to and raise the profile of NS FPS to all members of the Naval Service and the wider military communities we serve.
