In a North/South engagement earlier today, the team from the Northern Ireland Veterans Commissioner’s Office visited their counterparts in The Royal British Legion (Rep. of Ireland) and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) (Rep. of Ireland Branch). The team discussed and listened to the concerns of the two veterans’ support charities regarding veterans of the British Armed Forces from and living in the Rep. of Ireland. The team also met with members of The Organisation of National Ex-Personnel (ONE). A clear message from today is that it is critical that veterans know there is help if needed.

NI Veterans Commissioner – Danny Kinahan – said: “I was really pleased to meet with Irish branches of the RBL, SSAFA and ONE to ensure veterans are well looked after in the Rep. of Ireland. Today’s visit was important to see how we could help each other to improve the delivery of support to veterans.”
