star this property answer text <p>The £200 million Forces Help to Buy scheme commenced on 1 April 2014, meaning that Servicemen and women can now borrow up to 50% of their salary, up to a maximum of £25,000, interest-free, providing a boost to those needing to find a deposit to buy their own home.</p><p> </p><p>To assist the transition of serving personnel to civilian life, the MOD offers a wide-ranging resettlement programme which includes a briefing by the Joint Services Housing Advice Office. This offers advice and information about a range of topics that armed forces personnel may find useful relating to an individual's housing needs before they leave the armed forces.</p><p> </p><p>Once a person leaves service, any need for social housing becomes a local authority matter. The MOD is working closely with the Department for Communities and Local Government to ensure the fair treatment of service families in need of social housing and ensure they are given proper priority on housing waiting lists.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that there is more that can be done to provide practical support to our veterans and their families in this area. In February I announced LIBOR funding of £40 million to support charities which assist veterans with housing needs in order to build new homes, buy new accommodation and renovate old facilities. Projects are expected to include hostels and half-way houses for veterans who have fallen on hard times, supported housing for the wounded, injured and sick, and long-term care homes.</p><p> </p>

In order to achieve this outcome, we will focus our efforts on enabling consistency of medical outcomes for veterans, through a smooth transition of provision from in-Service to post-Service and sharing effective practices amongst clinical and healthcare communities; and providing bespoke treatment for those veterans who have specific health needs because of their service.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the welfare of Service personnel and veterans very seriously. As in society as a whole, the Armed Forces will never be able to eradicate the incidence of suicide, however we are not complacent; any suicide is one too many and a tragedy for the individual.</p><p> </p><p>As at 1 February 2018, there have been 29 coroner-confirmed suicide and open verdict deaths to UK Army Service personnel, whilst serving, who had previously deployed to Operation HERRICK (Afghanistan). In addition, there were three coroner-confirmed suicide and open verdict deaths to UK Army Service personnel whilst deployed on Operation HERRICK.</p><p> </p><p>Suicide data for veterans of the UK Armed Forces is not currently captured by the Ministry of Defence (MOD). However, the MOD has commissioned a new study to investigate causes of death, including suicide, amongst all those who served in the UK Armed Forces between 2001 and 2014, covering combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This will include Army personnel who are still in service, and Army personnel who have now transitioned into civilian life.</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-study-into-iraq-and-afghanistan-veterans-launched" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-study-into-iraq-and-afghanistan-veterans-launched</a></p><p> </p><p>Every study conducted by the MOD has found that the risk of suicide amongst the Armed Forces community is lower than amongst the general population. The UK Regular Armed Forces male rate of suicide for 2017 was 8 per 100,000. In contrast, the UK general population male rate in 2016 was 19 per 100,000. The UK Regular Armed Forces have seen a declining trend in male suicide rates since the 1990s. Suicide remains a rare event, evidenced by the small number of deaths in each year.</p><p> </p>
