Welfare

The Army LGBT provides all Army personnel, and Civil Servants working with the Army, with confidential support and advice on LGBT issues at work. In addition to this confidential welfare advice is available to all serving members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.

We are also an active founder member of the Army’s ‘Network of Networks’ which includes the Army Women’s Network, Armed Forces Buddhist Society, Armed Forces Christian Union, Armed Forces Hindu Network, Defence Humanists, Armed Forces Muslim Association, Armed Forces Sikh Association and Defence Jewish Communities.

Within our own site we have the following advice available in certain areas:

Coming out
Health
Anti-bullying and harassment
Relationships and families
Housing

In addition to this useful information can also be found on the following external websites:

Army Welfare & Support – The Army Welfare Service is the Army’s professional welfare provider; it delivers a comprehensive and confidential welfare service responsive to the needs of individuals and families and the Chain of Command in order to maximize the operational effectiveness of our servicemen and women.

Army Equality & Diversity – Everyone in the Army, no matter what their sexual orientation, has the right to be treated fairly with dignity and respect. Recognising that we are all different and using those differences to benefit the team is what the Army is all about.

The Counselling Directory – This professional service understands just how daunting it can be to reach out and seek help. Not knowing where to start or who to turn to can also feel overwhelming.
