Help for former Armed Forces Members to find housing
Plans to help former members of the Armed Forces community and Service personnel transferring back into civilian life find suitable accommodation and avoid homelessness have been announced by Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children Carl Sargeant.
The Communities Secretary launched the Housing Pathway for ex-Service personnel during a visit to Tŷ Dewr - a facility which provides accommodation for veterans in Wrexham.
The Housing Pathway has been developed with the housing and Armed Forces sector who have highlighted that one of the key concerns highlighted on leaving the Services was suitable accommodation for them and their families and the support available.
The Pathway aims to help Service personnel and their families make an informed choice of their accommodation options on return to civilian life.
Launching the Pathway, Carl Sargeant said:
“Moving back into civilian life can be a difficult process for some and the Pathway is intended to ease that process, and help ex-Service personnel and their families resettle into their chosen communities.
“Ty Dewr is a fitting location to launch the Housing Pathway. Providing support for our ex-Service Personnel to gain their independence allows them to move on with their lives.
“The Housing Pathway will be available on Welsh Government’s website page and will be sent to all key partners, including the Ministry of Defence, for further circulation to Service personnel during their transition period.”
