Have your say on how the Government supports Service personnel

Post by Guest on Wed 12 Mar 2008, 6:45 am

Service personnel and their families are being asked their views on how the Government provides healthcare, childcare, housing and other services to the current and former Armed Forces.

In November 2007 the Defence Secretary announced the launch of a cross-Government Command Paper to review the level of support given to serving personnel, their families and veterans and to publish a co-ordinated strategy to improve that support.
Armed Forces Minister Bob Ainsworth said:

"The provision of support to our Service community has progressed significantly since SDR [the 1998 Strategic Defence Review], but we are not complacent and realise there is much more to be done. The Service Personnel Command Paper provides us with an unparalleled opportunity to ensure a comprehensive approach is taken in Government to the provision of these services."

This Service Personnel Command Paper, led by the MOD, will be the first ever cross-Government strategy for supporting Service personnel, families and veterans covering all areas of support including accommodation, medical care, education, the transition to civilian life and veterans' welfare.

And the Service Personnel Command Paper team are keen to hear about the issues that are currently affecting you as a member of the Armed Forces, serving, reservist or veteran, or a family member (be it parent, partner, spouse or child). In particular, the team are keen to hear of your experiences of the delivery of services such as health, housing, childcare and education.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Command Paper consultation, please send it electronically via the Service Personnel Command Paper Enquiry Form in Related Links >>>
