Office for Veterans' AffairsAbout us

Johnny is proud to be the first Minister of State for Veterans’ Affairs, working out of the Cabinet Office and attending Cabinet to ensure that the interests of veterans are championed right at the heart of government. The Office for Veterans’ Affairs (OVA) leads efforts to make sure the UK is the best place in the world to be a veteran, helping the nation fulfil its duty to people who have served in the armed forces.

Although veterans share the experience of having served in the armed forces, they are civilians, needing access to civilian support and contributing to the life of our whole society. From the heart of the UK government, the OVA works with devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, local government, charities and businesses to help veterans when they need it and enabling them to continue to make brilliant contributions to society after leaving the armed forces.
