After having served in the armed forces, they are discarded and forgotten. What happens everyday to veterans is a shame for the whole UK: thousands of them are homeless, can’t afford to buy their own meal and struggle to survive. Men and women who put their life at risk for the safety and security of the UK deserve the best support. The Armed Forces Covenant, which is about making sure that people in the armed forces are treated fairly and don’t experience disadvantages as a result of their service, is clearly not a central part of the government’s decision making process. “The Government don’t know whether veterans injured in service are being given priority NHS treatment - writes Gemma Doyle, UK Parliament member, on The Independent - and they have no idea whether local authorities have the right resources and expertise to meet the obligations of the Community Covenant. Frankly that’s not good enough and they cannot continue to pass the buck.”
