The new Ministerial Armed Forces Covenant and Veterans Board will drive forward and coordinate better Government support to the Armed Forces, their families and veterans across the whole of the UK. The devolved administrations play an important role in providing this support, which is why representatives from the Scottish Government and Welsh Government, and the Northern Ireland Civil Service, were invited to the inaugural meeting of the Board in October 2017. Following discussions at that meeting, the Government is considering the best arrangements for future meetings.
