In May 2011, the coalition government published the Armed Forces Covenant. It pledged that "those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives."That was spelled out specifically to include education and family well-being, having a home, starting a new career, access to healthcare and financial assistance. 

Those principles were enshrined in law in the Armed Forces Act 2011, which obliged the Defence Secretary to report every year on progress made by the Government in observing those principles.

The Government, The Department of Work and Pensions and Universal Credit has constantly failed to support Veterans who are literally supported by Charities and not the Government.

Veterans have been left homeless, without benefits and without the care agreed in the Armed Forces Covenant.

This impacts every community and families of Veterans.
