UKIP is proud to announce the new UKIP Veterans group, recently launched by Deputy Leader, Mike Hookem MEP, at the UKIP NI conference in Belfast to our membership.
This special interest group is open to serving and former members of HM Forces (including those of UK overseas territories, such as the Falkland Islands Defence Force); serving and ex-police officers; other warranted members of the law enforcement community (HMRC, Border Force etc); Prison Officers; together with their families and dependents.
We hope to draw support and engagement from right across the extended veteran community and bring everyone from the myriad different groups together in one place to discuss the issues affecting our serving and ex-HM Forces personnel and their families, to help us to formulate policy and bring pressure on Westminster to properly deal with these issues, something which none of the legacy parties has shown any real interest in doing.
|The mission statement for UKIP veterans reads:
Britain’s veterans today face a range of issues that must be tackled, including problems with the implementation of the Armed Forces Covenant; the ticking timebomb of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the spectre of homelessness to name but a few.
In 2017, UKIP’s deputy leader, Mike Hookem MEP, made a short documentary on homelessness in the veterans community which examined many of the problems above.
If you are a veteran, please contact us on 01903 885573 or on firstname.lastname@example.org.
