The Garrison Welfare team are an approachable interface for families within the military system and a focal point for all personnel on welfare matters. The team aids the integration of individuals and families new to the unit and is the focal point for information about the Army and the unit.

He/she then refers them to the appropriate specialist welfare agency when there is a need to do so.
The Garrison Welfare Support Team is the point of contact and liaises between the unit and the Army Welfare Service (AWS) and other military and civilian agencies.
The Team provides advice and support to those in the unit chain of command, who may be involved in helping soldiers or their families with personal problems.
The Team liaises closely with Chaplains, Medical Officers and WRVS staff who have responsibilities for their unit personnel and families. The Welfare Team's closest liaison is with the Army Welfare Service (AWS).
The Team assists in Garrison community facilities such as the Youth Club, the local schools and liaises with the Community Workers, HIVE, MOD, Police, Military Police, Health Visitor, Defence Estates Housing and Amey.
