'Welcome to Scotland' Package

‘Welcome to Scotland’ is a project that provides support and advice for families who are deciding to relocate to Scotland after the serving member has been assigned to the area.

The Offer

Aggie Weston’s will provide a free two night stay in Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the Helensburgh area for an RN or RM family; if the serving member of the family has been assigned to HMNB Clyde.

Every effort will be made to arrange the stay in a B&B facility selected to provide a friendly, homely and welcoming introduction to the region.

The offer does not include transport or meals (other than breakfast).

Optimising the Benefit

The ‘Welcome to Scotland’ stay will seek to take a proactive approach to encourage families to seriously consider relocation. Aggie Weston’s will coordinate visits, and liaise with representatives from HMNB Clyde and Argyll and Bute Council. This will ensure that the families optimise their stay in Helensburgh .

Information from the Scottish Government

The Scottish Government has published a welcome guide, specifically written for Naval Service families.  The link to the online guide is here

Increased Take Up

In the event that the improved and more proactive nature of the offer leads to an increase in uptake, Aggie Weston’s will reserve the right to work with the COB Staff to optimise the use of financial resource allocated to the project. For example, it may be that use of Base short term let facilities could provide a more cost effective option if the demand significantly exceeds the availability.
