star this property answer text <p>We already offer every Service leaver assistance with their transition when they leave us, through our Armed Forces' resettlement provision and the Career Transition Partnership. However, for a small proportion who still face problems, it is right to offer additional support.</p><p>We are introducing a new holistic transition policy relating to the significant life changing processes which affect both the Service person and their immediate family through the entire time they are within or connected to the Armed Forces, through to discharge and beyond. This is to support successful transition into civilian life.</p><p>In conjunction with this new policy, we are creating a new organisation to deliver further support to those Service leavers who face the greatest challenges to making a successful transition when they leave the Armed Forces. The service will be available to all leavers and will be based on the need of the individual.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant remains a cross-Government priority and a nationwide commitment to ensure those who serve and have served, and their families, are not disadvantaged, and that special provision may be appropriate for those who have sacrificed the most.</p><p>The Armed Forces Covenant's Annual Report is available at this link (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/armed-forces-covenant-annual-report-and-summary-2018) and sets out the major annual achievements of the Armed Forces Covenant across the UK and highlights remaining challenges and new commitments.</p><p>Strategic direction and oversight has been improved by the creation of the Armed Forces Covenant and Veterans Board, held biannually and chaired by the Secretary of State for Defence and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster on behalf of the Prime Minister, with Ministerial representation from the relevant Departments and the Devolved Administrations.</p><p>Alongside the Covenant and Veterans Board and the Annual Report to Parliament, governance arrangements include independent scrutiny and challenge from the Service charities and military Family Federations, performance metrics, and quarterly meetings of the Covenant Reference Group, co-chaired at Director-General level by Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence.</p><p>Through the sharing of good practice, the overall outcomes for the Armed Forces community are improving. We remain committed to strengthening the Armed Forces Covenant, through new avenues, as well as our tried and tested methods of success.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice provides funding to specialist sexual violence services to support victims to cope and, where possible, recover from the impact of crime. We awarded increased funding to services in April this year and made a commitment of £24m over three years. This funding is reaching 96 rape support centres across England and Wales, ensuring specialist provision in each of the country’s 42 Police and Crime Commissioner areas.</p><p>We provide £306,849 funding for helplines and online services to ensure that all victims, regardless of location, can access support.</p><p>Services in receipt of Ministry of Justice grant funding are expected to understand and respond to the specific needs of victims in their area. This includes the provision of services tailored to victims that may face additional barriers, such as BAME groups, to accessing support.</p><p>Victims may also access Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs). There are 47 SARCs in England who carry out forensic medical examinations and offer counselling services. NHS England Investment in SARCs will increase to £35m by 2020. Victims may also access NHS mental health services.</p><p>We are exploring ways to improve support for BAME victims as part of our work to tackle racial disparity in the Criminal Justice System.</p>
