About the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA)
“Veterans-UK” - The New Name For Services To Veterans
What is Veterans - UK ?
On 2 April 2007, the Ministry of Defence created a new brand for services to veterans – Veterans-UK.
There are many organisations that provide help and support to UK veterans, both from Government and the voluntary sector. This can at times be confusing for those seeking help as they are unsure about which organisation provides which services and from whom to seek help.
Veterans-UK will be the single brand or banner covering a variety of different veterans services provided by a range of different organisations. It will form a single point for accessing information.
The first steps will involve, from 2 April, a new veterans’ portal website www.veterans-uk.info replacing the previous Veterans Agency website. This will provide a single website and e-mail address from which information can be obtained. Services provided by the Veterans Services Directorate of Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA) will also come under the Veterans-UK name for promotional and publicity purposes.
For the future, it is hoped the new brand will include other Ministry of Defence services to veterans and later those from other Government Departments and possibly voluntary sector organisations. Again, the website will provide the focal point for accessing information on these services.
