The independent Armed Forces' Pay Review Body (AFPRB) provides advice annually to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Defence on pay levels for members of the Armed Forces. In reaching their recommendations the AFPRB consider a number of factors.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has no plans to create a register of veterans.</p><p>The Department has, however, sponsored the inclusion of questions about veterans in the Office for National Statistics' Annual Population Survey (APS) in order to provide the evidence base required by Government, third parties and the private sector to aid policy development in support of the Armed Forces Covenant and to better understand the UK Armed Forces veteran population in Great Britain. The APS has enabled analysis of veterans by socio-demographic characteristics including: gender, age, location, health, smoking status, employment and accommodation (housing). The latest publication for 2015 is available at the following website: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-population-survey-uk-armed-forces-veterans-residing-in-great-britain-2015.</p><p>The vast majority of Service leavers make a smooth transition from military to civilian life. Support for veterans, like all other members of the general population, is provided by the wider Government including local authorities and the Devolved Administrations. The MOD is determined to ensure that veterans who require help are provided with appropriate support including through the Veterans UK helpline and website, the Veterans Welfare Service and the Veterans Information Service which contacts veterans 12 months after their discharge.</p><p>Most recently, the launch of the Veterans Gateway on 20 June provided by a consortium of charities led by the Royal British Legion provides extra support in the form of a staffed, 24-hour, one-stop-shop offering guidance on accessing public, private and charitable services in the UK.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence does not have primary responsibility for homeless veterans but works closely with the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), other Government Departments, veterans' organisations and other service providers to ensure a coordinated and structured approach to homelessness amongst a small minority of veterans. Our aim is both to prevent new Service leavers becoming homeless and to provide an effective safety net for existing homeless veterans. Current measures to achieve this include enhanced housing advice and assistance to all Service personnel, and an extension of the Forces Help to Buy Scheme until 2018. In addition, the DCLG has extended the period within which veterans are given priority for Government funded shared ownership schemes, from 12 to 24 months after service. Support to our veterans, including the homeless, is provided through the Veterans UK helpline and website, the Veterans Welfare Service and the Veterans Information Service which contacts veterans 12 months after their discharge. The Veterans Gateway, launched on 20 June by a consortium of charities led by the Royal British Legion, provides a 24 hour advice service to help with issues such as finance, housing and health.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence takes very seriously the welfare of Armed Forces personnel and veterans.</p><p>Fortunately, suicide among members of the Armed Forces remains extremely rare and is generally lower than comparative rates in the civilian population. Our own studies relevant to the suicide rate among veterans of the UK Armed Forces looked at deaths that occurred among veterans of the 1990/91 Gulf and veterans of the 1982 Falklands campaign. Both studies show that there was no excess in the rates of suicide in these groups of veterans and is lower than comparative rates in the civilian population.</p><p>The NHS in England and the Devolved Administrations are primarily responsible for the provision of healthcare, including mental healthcare, for veterans.</p><p>Veterans in England, Scotland and Wales receive priority access to NHS secondary care for Service-related conditions, subject to the clinical need of all patients. The Ministry of Defence also provides support through its Departments of Community Mental Health, and the Veterans and Reserves Mental Health Programme. In England, veterans and Service personnel approaching discharge benefit from the new NHS England transition, intervention and liaison (TIL) mental health service launched on 1 April 2017.</p><p>Veterans can also access support services from:</p><p>www.gov.uk/mental-health-support-for-the-uk-armed-forces or call the 24-hour veterans' mental health helpline on 0800 138 1619 or the Veterans Gateway:</p><p>https://www.veteransgateway.org.uk/</p>
