Supporting our armed forces community

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

The Royal British Legion recently held an event in Parliament to showcase their work as the leading provider of welfare for the Armed Forces community. Meg Munn MP went along and met Chris Cunningham, the Legion’s Area Manager for Yorkshire.

Meg used the opportunity to discuss with Mr Cunningham the changing face of Armed Forces welfare provision in the local community. The event also presented a chance for Meg to hear more about the Legion’s work developing Community Covenants locally.

In 2011/12, the Legion spent over 60 million on its welfare services and 22 million running its care homes. In addition, it has committed 50 million over ten years to support the MOD led Defence Recovery Capability programme for wounded, injured and sick Armed Forces men and women.

Meg said:

“I was pleased to meet Chris and hear about the ongoing work the Legion are doing. Providing assistance for members and former members of the Armed Forces who have been injured, or who need help in other ways, as well as their families, is a 365-day-a-year job. It is vital that we honour the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces, and I’m proud to support the work of The Royal British Legion.”

Chris Cunningham said:

“It was great to see Meg and we appreciated her making the time to drop in. Many people don’t realise that we spend 1.6 million every week in direct welfare support for the Serving and ex-Service community and their families, so we were delighted to tell her about the range of services we provide”.
