I am deeply proud of our Armed Forces personnel, veterans, and their families for the enormous contribution they make to our country. But they are being let down by this Government.

After 13 years of Conservative failure, Ministers have created a postcode lottery for veterans, halved employment support and more veterans are homelessness this year than last year.

Labour analysis shows that veterans’ homelessness rose by 14% in the year 2022-23 compared to the previous year. The new analysis also found that there are around 500 veterans’ households being made newly homeless every three months – up to 180 households a month.Everyone should have a decent home that’s safe, decent quality and affordable. That’s why last year I launched Homes Fit for HeroesLabour’s campaign to  highlight the poor state of armed forces accommodation.In Government, Labour will fully incorporate the Armed Forces Covenant into law to fulfil the moral contract with those who serve and make sure that former personnel have easy access to high quality, affordable homes fit for heroes.
