Nia has just visited St Dunstan’s rehabilitation centre in Llandudno where she talked to veterans with visual impairments who are benefitting from the centre’s rehabilitation programmes. The visit is part of a Welsh Affairs Committee inquiry into the treatment of veterans in Wales, and was followed by a chance to hear from representatives of organisations working with veterans.

“There is a huge amount of public goodwill towards veterans out there supporting as many as a thousand charitable and benevolent organisations in the UK, and yet it is still possible for veterans in need to slip through the net. There is clearly a need for better co-ordination and streamlining of services to  ensure veterans receive the help they need, and to ensure best value for money.”
