Welfare Officers

There are two Welfare Officers at ATC Pirbright, both of whom are responsible for the support, assistance and welfare advice given to all recruits, as well as permanent staff and their dependants. When dealing with recruits’ concerns, they can direct personnel to the right advice and information.

A duty Unit Welfare Officer is on call 24 hours a day.

Women’s Royal Voluntary Service

Women’s Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) staff offer support to recruits in a relaxed, social environment away from the military regime.

WRVS Service Welfare Officers provide recruits with advice, guidance, sympathy and practical support for any problems they may be having. Appointments are not needed.


Faith support is available for all. It is confidential and outside of the military chain of command.
ATC Pirbright has two churches – All Saints and St Edward the Confessor (RC). They are open for prayer and reflection each day. Sunday morning services are open to all families, permanent staff and recruits. There are three chaplains in the team, as well as a scripture reader and verger.

Everyone is welcome to call in for a chat whether something is troubling them, they have a faith-related question, or just want to say hello and have a cup of coffee.

A multi-faith prayer room is also available.
