Rishi Sunak – 2019 Comments on Armed Forces Champions

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury, on 20 September 2019.

I’ve been honoured to spend time with many veterans and service personnel, and I’m constantly humbled by their service. They deserve our support to ensure they never find themselves out of work and without help.

That’s why we are spending up to £6 million to increase the number of Armed Forces Champions in our jobcentres. They’ll be a vital extra help as our former soldiers, sailors, airmen and women take the first steps into a new career.
