Parliamentary candidates: will you support the Veterans Pledge?

This election, we’re asking party leaders and parliamentary candidates across the country to commit to supporting veterans.

Please will you publicly show your support for the Help for Heroes Veterans Pledge, and ask your party leader to sign the pledge on behalf of your party? We’ve made it easy to share and show your support online.

Please get in touch if there is any other way we can help. You can email our policy team at

The Party Leaders Veterans Pledge, 2024

I pledge to support veterans and their families and to end the ongoing injustices they face. As part of my commitment to veterans I pledge to:

  1. Keep the Office for Veterans’ Affairs, led by a cabinet attending minister, giving veterans a voice at the heart of government.

  2. Commission an independent review of the medical discharge process, to kickstart the reform needed so that all veterans leaving service due to injury or illness get the support they need.

  3. Remove unfair barriers to receiving benefits and compensation so that every veteran gets the financial support they need and deserve.

These three pledges would lead to life changing improvements for veterans, if the next government commits to them.

23,000 people have already added their name to the call for party leaders to sign the Veterans Pledge, and the number is growing every day.

You are welcome to add your name to this call too, but as a local candidate, the most helpful thing you can do is publicly talk about your support for the Veterans Pledge and encourage your party leader to sign.
