Local authorities, military charities and other stakeholders came together at the RAF Club in London to discuss homelessness and the allocation of social housing to Veterans, in order to achieve a more coherent and impactful approach…

London Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committees (VAPC) chairman Lynn Verity said she was delighted with the commitment shown: “Housing is an incredibly complex and emotive subject; put it together with a special group like Veterans and it can become even more so. But after today we think it’s possible that agreement may emerge on what is best practice; something that could be of real use not just in London but also in other parts of the UK.”

The event, organised by London VAPC, included as stakeholders the University of Kent Law School, the Royal British Legion and Renewing the Covenant in the Capital. London boroughs, Greater London Authority members, major military charities and organisations involved in the welfare of ex-servicemen and women, including Veterans UK and the MOD, also attended.

Contributions from the delegates will now be analysed by the University of Kent, who will formulate a research programme. The aim is to work with local authorities and interested groups to produce practical outcomes.
