Cant say whether this is the case in all offices, but i can say that that units families office appears corrupt. They like to use the old school tie 'buddy buddy' system and do sod all for the soldiers in their care, or so i've heard!

I take it this is a wah, yes?
If not..God help us all! Have you tried the Army Welfare Service? It's a litle known service available to all ranks (spot the sarcasm)
Come on, surely it's not that bad... if it is I would relayy like to know.
Folks if you cannot be of any help why waste your time posting, if this isn't a wah then help the bloke....
If you need any kind of welfare help then you can approach your chain of command (of course some folks do not want to take this course for personal reasons or conflicts)
Contact your unit welfare/families office/officer and make an appointment for a 1to1, they usually good blokes who are LE and have some sense about them. Still no joy? Then ask at the families office for the contact details of the Garrison Welfare Officer, they cannot refuse you, these are independant folks who can pull strings and fast!! you can also get their number via the tele operator.
Still no joy? (at this point I would be pissed off if you didn't) then you can approach your unit Padre/Father and seek help there, it's as confidential as it gets and he has all the welfare numbers you could poke a stick at.
Last resort is the WRVS if you have one, they have the power of a Jedi when it comes to upsetting CO's with ill news that the boys/girls are not being looked after properly, unless he's a total chopper and cares not for the folks he leads,................................... I met one of those once unfortunately, he was the crowning turd in the pipe.
I hope this helps, if not send me a PM and I will help you further...
