VA&PC - Continuance of UDR & R IRISH (Home Service) Aftercare Service
The Ministry of Defence has agreed that the UDR & R IRISH (HS) Aftercare Service is to continue to exist and be funded.
However, in line with other defence restructuring, it has been decided that eventually it should become owned by the MOD’s main veterans’ support organisation, known as Veterans UK, which includes the Veterans’ Welfare Service (VWS).
A transition programme is being agreed to ensure that the aftercare service’s capability is retained once subsumed into Veterans UK, probably not before 2020.
