Today, the Communities Secretary will announce our plan to prioritise social housing for veterans suffering from mental health conditions, ensuring our armed forces get the help they need.
Former service personnel suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or other mental illnesses will be prioritised for social housing under the new proposals.
Our plans will mean all applicants for social housing will be asked if they have served in the Forces to make sure our armed forces receive the help they need.
Why this matters: While the vast majority of veterans thrive in civilian life, we have a responsibility to ensure that any who do struggle as a result of their service – whether finding a job, getting on the property ladder or with mental health issues – get the support they need.
