Covenant boost for armed forces community

The Queen's Speech has set out legislation for the creation of a service complaints ombudsman to protect and support the UK armed forces. 

Members of the armed forces across the UK are set to benefit from legislation outlined in the new Service Complaints and Financial Assistance Bill.

The new legislation will strengthen the existing service complaints system and enable payments to organisations that support service personnel and their families.

It will also create the armed forces’ first service complaints ombudsman, a new powerful watchdog with the ability to investigate concerns from service personnel that their complaints have not been dealt with properly.
