The Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committee (VAPC) is seeking three new Chairpersons, one for each of the following UK regions – Eastern, Yorkshire and Humberside, East Scotland.

The Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committees (VAPC) are a regional network that will help veterans and their families to access vital welfare support.

There are 13 regional Committees – across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales each one having between 12 and 20 members. They will ensure that the best possible service is provided locally.

The committees have built on the role of the previous War Pension Committees and are made up of volunteers from a cross-section of the local community with a genuine interest in furthering the support available to Veterans and their families, including health, social care, legal professionals and veterans groups.

The new committees act as advocates for Veterans in support of the Armed Forces Covenant, which sets out the nation’s commitment to cross-Government support to Veterans, and improving access to help, advice and benefits for members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
