  1. Greetings.

    I have recently taken on a role with welfare responsibilites for a TA unit. Being new to this role, I may have some questions regarding welfare issues for my deployed troops. I am aware of the agencies out there to offer me assistance, and the plethora of publications, but would also like to augment these with info from the coal-face. Is this the right forum to float these questions? I know it says Welfare in the title, but seems to be used predominantly for charity stuff.

    Thanks in advance.

    Pee Kay,

    it is some time since you posted but FWIW, there is a point of contact in the Army Families federation who has SPECIFIC role related to TA families - and that covers the whole gamut , not just wives/partners - who might need support while their loved one is on tour.

    If you are not already in touch the AFF POC is:

    Tina THORNBER
    Army Families Federation
    Tel: Via Central Office 01980 615525

    Email: TA@aff.org.uk

    Tina is a former TA soldier herself so has a lot of personal knowledge and experience to bring to bear.

    From her page:

    Best of luck with your appointment.
