Have your say

NAVAL families are being asked for their views on the Royal Navy’s digital support services.

The Senior Service is looking to speak to veterans who served for at least five years or partners of serving sailors, aged between 21 and 29, to join new study.

As part of the navy’s ongoing improvement to welfare and support through digital channels, a need has been identified to review how people are currently accessing and using the welfare section of the force’s website, and various social media channels.

A Royal Navy spokesman said: ‘We would like to conduct some research with young families of serving personnel to better understand their experiences and content needs, so that improvements can be made to the current welfare pages.

‘We would also like to hear from young service leavers about your views of our digital channels.’

To be part of the study, please email with your name and contact details.

If you meet any of the below criteria, please email today with your name, contact email or phone, and say which of the criteria you fit.
