The Veterans’ Strategy Action Plan covers the actions the UK Government will take to support veterans and their families and sets out ways to work together across the UK to achieve the same level of quality support, wherever veterans live.
The plan has more than 60 commitments, totaling more than £70 million from across government, to increase employment, step up health and wellbeing services and improve data and understanding of the veteran community throughout the UK.
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Steve Barclay said:
“Veterans make a fantastic contribution to society and the measures announced today will help even more ex-service personnel realise their potential.
“Whether it’s more employment opportunities, better digital services and targeted support, all of government is working to make the UK the best place in the world to be a veteran.”
