COUNT THEM IN – ROYAL BRITISH LEGION
Last week it was a pleasure to declare my support for the Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland’s ‘Count Them In’ campaign. This calls for questions on the Armed Forces community to be included in the next UK census.
There are over 6 million members of this community in the UK, but little is known about their exact numbers, location and needs. It is important that we know these statistics so that public bodies, local authorities, charities and the government are able to deliver the best services and support they can.
