Ahead of the National Assembly for Wales election in May 2021, we launched our Wales Manifesto outlining key actions to improve the welfare and services of the Armed Forces community in Wales.

Also available in Welsh.

Our Manifesto calls on the next Welsh Government to:

  • Work with the Ministry of Defence to provide resettlement centre services in Wales to ensure improved transition into civilian life. 
  • Ensure that injured veterans can consistently access chronic pain treatment when they need it, where they need it, and in a manner that works for them. 
  • Commit to permanently fund the Supporting Service Children in Education Wales Fund and continue investment in the SSCE Cymru Project to ensure Service children have the best possible start. 
  • Expand and accelerate the roll out of guaranteed interviews for Armed Forces Service Leavers, Reservists and spouses who meet the minimum criteria for public sector jobs in Wales.
  • Extend Housing Priority Need to cover 5 years post leaving military service and ensure divorced or separated spouses and partners of Service personnel in Wales can access housing support on the same terms as other Armed Forces families.
  • Update the ‘Veterans Substance Misuse Treatment Framework’ and deliver better support to veterans with substance abuse issues.
