The Naval Service champions a freedom of choice policy when it comes to personnel serving accompanied or unaccompanied. This is particularly desirable for the dependants of personnel serving long periods at sea, who wish to put down roots in a community, maintain family stability, and retain a circle of friends.

Relocating can seem like a daunting prospect, but for personnel wishing to serve accompanied, we're here to help with relocation benefits and providing Service Family Accommodation (SFA), for example.
