I work for Veterans UK, a department of the Ministry of Defence, committed to assisting veterans, we also act as the Sponsor Department for the Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committee (VAPC), a Non-Departmental Public Body whose Chairmen and Members are appointed by the Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans.
The roles of the VAPC include raising awareness of the War Pensions and Armed Forces Compensation Schemes, the Veterans UK Welfare Service and the availability of cross government support to Veterans and their families assisting veterans in accessing local services as envisaged under the Armed Forces Covenant. The VAPC also provide support to Veterans UK by providing a quality assurance role for the Veterans Welfare Service and assisting individuals with any problems or complaints they have regarding the war pensions or AFCS claims process and much more besides.
The VAPC is looking for new members for its 13 regional committees. The positions are voluntary, unpaid roles but travel, subsistence and loss of earnings may be payable.
This year a separate advert has been published for each region, so rather than send you 14 different links here is the link to the Public Appointments vacancy page: https://publicappointments.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/search-appointments/ if you type the word veterans in the “keyword” search box at the top of the page the list of adverts will pop up. I would be grateful if you could circulate the link t as widely as you can, to anyone who you think may be interested and, if possible, publish them on your intranet/internet sites.
If you are not the person best placed to assist, I would be grateful if you would pass this on to the appropriate person within your organisation.
