The ‘Veteran’s Gateway’ is a gateway to information and a first point of contact, helping veterans to access support without delay.

Many of the team are veterans themselves, so have first-hand experience of the issues that people face after leaving the armed forces.

Advisers can be contacted 24 hours a day, representing the first time a group has come together to formally deliver this service to veterans.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘This is an incredible initiative which both simplifies and speeds-up access to advice and support.

‘Many excellent organisations support the armed forces community, but navigating the available services can be tricky.

‘A one-stop-shop bringing together a wealth of experience and expertise will ensure that unnecessary delays are avoided – I’m really glad the gorvernment is making this commitment.
