UK Government's Strategy for Our Veterans

7 February 2019 - In November 2018, the UK Government published Strategy for Our Veterans, setting out aims and principles to meet the needs of older veterans as well as the wider veteran community over the next ten years. Scottish War Blinded's submission called for the UK and Scottish Governments to work collaboratively to ensure the strategy achieves positive change for veterans in Scotland. It highlighted gaps in provision, particularly for disabled veterans and those living with vision imapirment, and emphasised the importance of signposting veterans to relevant support as soon as they require it.
