DescriptionThe UK Government public consultation complementing the Strategy for our Veterans was launched 14 November 2018 and will end on 21 February 2019.
We are holding two consultation events to facilitate round table discussions on how best to implement the Strategy for our Veterans based on the consultation questions in the paper, for those currently involved in providing or evaluating services. These events are aimed at Armed Forces charities, local authorities, academics. These London events will be held at MOD, Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB on: 30 January and 4 February 2019. We are also hoping to hold an event in Manchester, but this is yet to be confirmed.
We would like to invite you to apply for a place at one of the two London events, either to attend on 30 January or 4 February. There will be a maximum number of 80 attendees per event, so we may have to allocate quotas per stakeholder group.
The following is a draft outline structure of the day: Discussions will be framed around the consultation questions set out in the UK Government Consultation Paper, which is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/strategy-for-our-veterans-uk-government-consultation-paper.
