The Army has a policy of zero tolerance of Domestic Violence (DV) and has procedures in place to provide confidential advice and support to those subjected to it. The Army Welfare Service (AWS) or SSAFA can be approached in the first instance, they will provide a caseworker who will listen and provide information. This is a confidential service; they will not speak to your partner’s unit unless you ask them to or unless there are child protection issues. They will need to make sure that you and any children you have are safe, and will work with other agencies to protect you and your family. You can also access all civilian support services.
