CARE AND ASSISTANCE FOR MILITARY FAMILIES (CAMP)
The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force Welfare Department was established on 31 st December 1981 by Cabinet minute, as part of the Staff of the Chief of Defence Staff, with effect from the 1 st January 1982. Welfare in The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force in its broadest sense is to enhance the morale and well being of all Defence Force personnel and their families. It provides material aid, health, education and social services, at the same time maintaining a strict code of confidentiality. To this end the overall objective of the department is to improve the quality of life for every member of the Force thus crafting a healthier workplace for us all.
The Welfare department operates as an Employees Assistance Programme for military families. The acronym CAMP represents Care and Assistance for Military Personnel. The outlining of the men in the CAMP logo is representative of the dedication of the staff that renders support, assistance and comfort to their beleaguered colleagues and families.
