My Department has signed up to the Ministry of Defence Covenant that aims to assist the nation’s service personnel when they return from active service. In each financial year of the current spending round, £1.7million—approximately 10% of the main national disabled facilities grant annual allocation that supports housing adaptations —is set aside for wounded ex-service personnel.
