Title: Veterans First Point Lanarkshire
That the Parliament welcomes the support and assistance that Veterans First Point (V1P) Lanarkshire provides to ex-service men and women in all aspects of their lives; notes that V1P is a free to use service with mental health specialists and veteran peer support workers (PSWs), who work in partnership with the NHS and mental health support agencies to ensure that veterans receive coordinated support; understands that the PSWs, who are all ex-service men or women, offer a point of contact for those who may be approaching the service for the first time; congratulates V1P on its recent event to raise awareness of the service in conjunction with Armed Forces Day, and acknowledges V1P’s remarkable work to ensure that veterans, who it considers have earned the public’s utmost respect and admiration, will continue to receive the support that they require and deserve.
