Wednesday, July 20, 2011 – Up-to-date information, advice and support regarding Family Members of British Service Personnel (Army, Royal Navy and RAF) who have been recruited from Saint Lucia will be the focus of a meeting later this week.


Discussions will focus on “whether serving persons can return home to St Lucia if someone falls ill within their family or if there are other family problems; what happens if the Serving person falls ill or is injured; what to do if the family are concerned about the welfare of their Serving relative; how to prepare for the deployment of the Serving persons; how to stay in touch with a Serving family member; visa issues and how to become part of the world-wide - Service community.” 


The meeting will also see a presentation about the support services available to Service personnel and their families and the process to access that information.     There will also be an open discussion about any welfare issues which are of concern to family members.  The meeting will discuss the formation of a self-help group in St Lucia for Service Families.


The July 23rd meeting which will be hosted by Greg Hind, Tri-Service Community Social Worker for the Eastern Caribbean will be held at the Kimatrai Hotel in Vieux Fort.


Please note this is a private meeting to allow family members to discuss any areas of concern to them. Details of the serving person (Service Number, Rank etc) will be requested in order to enter the meeting.


This is not a recruitment exercise by the British Armed Forces.


Family members interested in attending this Meeting are asked to contact or you can contact the British High Commission at 452 2484.
