The Office for Veterans’ Affairs and the Ministry of Defence have announced a major review into Veterans Welfare Services.
The review will focus on examining the effectiveness and efficiency of the range of welfare services for veterans and identify any duplication, or gaps in support.
With the creation of the Office for Veterans’ Affairs and the developments and changes that have been brought about in veterans’ care in the last ten years, it’s important that we examine the current support systems in place to make sure there is clarity in the scope and capacity of current services.
The review will take three months and be led by an independent civil servant, taking input from various stakeholders including the charity sector and Veterans advisors.
