The Station Welfare Officer deals with all military personnel and their families at the Army Aviation Centre (AACen). In respect of Phase 2 trainees, the welfare team offers help and advice with any problem worrying a soldier.

Welfare Officer

The Welfare Officer provides a confidential service and the discussion will not be passed on to anyone else without permission. The only time a confidence is broken is if threats of violence are made, either to yourself (self harm) or to others. The Welfare Officer does not have all the answers to every problem, but has the experience to find answers to the question, or a person who can answer the question.

The Station Welfare Officer at Middle Wallop is also the Independent Complaints Officer (ICO). This means if you think you are being unfairly treated you can approach the ICO to investigate the situation and try to resolve it at the lowest level.
