Welfare support during training
There is considerable welfare support on hand if anyone experiences any emotional or other problems. Rather than dwell on difficulties, Recruits and Officer Cadets are encouraged to discuss them openly with trained staff who are on-hand to deal with a wide range of problems. Training regiments and garrisons also have a resident Padre (the Army's term for a religious minister) and Unit Welfare Officer, both dedicated to providing help when required.
Duty of Care
The Army has a duty of care to its soldiers and officers, to ensure that they can work in a safe and healthy environment. Through the provision of thorough training programmes conducted in dedicated training areas that comply with rigorous safety standards, Army soldiers are fully trained to work effectively in difficult circumstances. Army training is second to none and allows soldiers to do their job properly - wherever they are required to do it.
