DMWS has been providing a Hospital Welfare Service to the Military community since 1943. This means we provide welfare support to service personnel, their families, veterans and other entitled civilians when they are in hospital, rehabilitation or recovery centres.

The service we provide is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and we currently provide support to over 10,000 patients and their families every year.  We are the only military charity that is represented throughout the entire care pathway, from point of injury right though to recovery.

We are also proud to be the only civilian welfare organisation and military charity that deploys to areas of conflict with our Armed Forces ensuring we are supporting our troops on the frontline.

Our service is unique and we work with other service charities such as Help for Heroes, Royal British Legion and Troop Aid to provide the best possible support to our Armed Forces.
