Advice Service

The Advice Service
Located in Fenner Block, HMS drake, Plymouth. Sometimes described as the Naval equivalent of the Citizen's Advice Bureau, it provides a wealth of information and advice across a broad range of Service and civilian issues that are relevant to RN/RM personnel and their families. It is an ideal starting point when seeking advice or information on any issue and provides a confidential service.

Link Letter Scheme
A fast and reliable means by which information from the Commanding Officer of a deployed Ship can be passed to a nominated person. The Advice Service ensure that this letter is posted to a nominee as quickly as possible.

Families' Information Link Line
Families and friends can access a recorded message about a deployed ship, its programme and special events. The Advice Service update this on a regular basis. Calls cost 5p per minute and calls will last no longer than 2 minutes.

Individual Problems
Whilst Advice Service is not a personal counselling service, as part of the NPFS it can provide a link to other support such as Social Work, Legal Advice, CSA and Community Services.
