As announced during Armed Forces week, more than £1 million in new money is being invested into a new digital service for veterans, due to be available in 2023. This will make it easier and quicker to demonstrate military service in order to access a range of Government and charity services, and will in turn help ensure that Recognition Cards are given only to those with verified service. The Government remains committed to delivering Veterans’ Recognition Cards and will advise of a timescale for final delivery when this work is complete.
