|A Few Words From Tracy
|First of all, thank you everyone who has completed our ASDIC Membership Survey so far. This important piece of research will inform our work going forward and remains open for your feedback. If you have not already done so, your answers to our survey would be greatly appreciated; you will find more information below. As well as this, July was a busy month of events for ASDIC, including the Cobseo AGM and a visit to South Yorkshire for a celebration of the local Armed Forces community. Through this we have been delighted to see the collaboration and valuable contributions to the sector by our members.

|Cobseo AGM 2022
|On 13 July we met fellow member organisations at the COBSEO AGM. It was a great opportunity to discuss the challenges ahead, how we can work together to overcome them and support each other in our mutual goals. Highlights included Johnny Mercer, the UK’s Cabinet Minister for Veterans Affairs, giving his first speech in the role, and a special presentation by Inna Draganchuk, the Deputy Ukrainian Minister for Veterans.

It is run by the Veterans’ Foundation who support charitable organisations (ASDIC included!) to provide a better life for our Armed Forces family.
