Education Welfare Officer (EWO) Every overseas command location has an allocated Education Welfare Officer. The team sits within the Specialist Support Services branch of Defence Children Services. The service is Quad-service, supporting all Army, Navy, RAF and Civilian families overseas.
All EWOs are experienced practitioners with a range of knowledge and skills relating to education, social care, military and local authority education welfare. We are a voluntary support service, available to support children and families where any attendance related issues or concerns are raised.
