Armed Forces Help and Support

There are a wide range of services specifically designed for the Armed Forces community available from local government, Ministry of Defence and third sector organisations. It can often be confusing when trying to find the best organisations to help.

To make this easier for you we have provided as much detail as we can on various aspects of support that can be provided. Veterans Gateway is also a service that is aimed at making accessing support much easier for veterans.

Whenever you request a service, please make us aware that you are a member of the armed forces community. There are often special rules that apply to members of the community in relation to local government services, and we want to ensure that you benefit from these.

The Welsh Government is committed to supporting the Armed Forces community in Wales. Their aim is to ensure members of this community are not disadvantaged in accessing public services as a result of Armed Forces service. To support this aim, a full review of the Armed Forces Package of Support was undertaken this year and an updated Package of Support was produced and published on the Welsh Government website on 25 June 2013.
