We are the Defence Medical Welfare Service, providing medical welfare support to the Armed Forces Community across the UK and in Cyprus.

Our Welfare Officers are highly trained and are ready to respond to those in need 24/7.

We are the only charity to deploy to areas of conflict alongside troops on the frontline, and the first welfare service that service personnel will see when they are wounded, injured or sick.
