Julian supports Royal British Legion North of England reception

October 18, 2022

Julian was honoured to support Royal British Legion (RBL) by attending their North of England reception in Westminster to hear first hand the important work they do to support the welfare of our armed forces.

The Royal British Legion is the UK’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 180,000 members, 110,000 volunteers and network partners and charities. These individuals help the charity to support veterans, serving personnel and their families.

York has a long and proud relationship with the British Armed Forces and it is only right that we support our ex and current service men and women who despite never meeting many of us risked everything for our safety. The RBL is there for these brave individuals and their families.

In York Outer we have 32 war widows, 116 people receiving military compensation, 975 veterans claiming a state pension and 365 Service children eligible for the Service Pupil Premium which supports Service children in our local schools. Just as Armed Forces personnel have been there for us, so is the RBL, and so must we.

During this meeting, Julian Sturdy MP was told of the RBL’s development of an MP Caseworker training programme to help assist MP’s and their staff better support their constituents from the wider Armed Forces Community. Julian and his team very much look forward to engaging with this new programme which covers a wide array of topics such as the Armed Forces Covenant, housing, schools and education, health and social care, and immigration.

Julian Sturdy MP said following the meeting, “The work that the Royal British Legion does is so important and recognises the need to support our brave Armed Forces community that have sacrificed so much for our safety. Many veterans and their families go on to lead fulfilling lives after they leave the military, but some face financial difficulties, homelessness and employment issues and it is only right that we support them as they have supported us”.

Every year we come together to remember those who lost their lives in armed conflict. This is a poignant time of year for everyone to show their appreciation for the brave sacrifices of so many.”

Nicola Cook, Director of Specialist Services for The RBL stated that she was “delighted to meet Julian and that she was grateful that he took the time to drop in”.
