Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay, is encouraging veterans in Mid-Cornwall to use the recently launched digital service to apply for the Veterans Card.
The Ministry of Defence has been working closely with the Office for Veterans’ Affairs and Government Digital Services to develop a new digital service to enable veterans who left the Armed Forces prior to December 2018 to verify their veteran status and receive a Veteran Card in the post.
Commenting, Steve said:
“The Veterans Card is a great way to ensure that veterans can quickly verify their status to access public and charitable sector support if they need it, as well as to provide a recognition of their much-valued service in the Armed Forces.”
“I am pleased that the Government has worked to make the Veteran Card as accessible as possible and it is good to see the launch of the new digital service to enable as many veterans as possible to easily get their card.”
“I encourage all who have served in the St Austell and Newquay constituency to use the new and easy application process to apply online, via the details below.”
