• Conor met SAMS to discuss work they undertake to help veterans

    Conor met with Sam Thompson and Vicky Owen of SAMS, a community interest company established to offer support and guidance to those who have left the armed forces and their families.

    At the meeting Conor discussed with the the work SAMS undertakes, including the recently launched veteran’s breakfast club. The breakfast club gives an opportunity for former forces personal to meet, chat and find out about the services and support on offer.

    Sam and Vicky also spoke about how those leaving the services could be better supported, and the implementation of the review last year into the transition between military and civilian life.

    Commenting Conor said:

    ‘It was good to meet representatives from SAMS and hear about the invaluable work they are doing.

    “It is only right that we properly support those who have served our country. SAMS and other community groups are doing a great job and are running some excellent programmes.

    “However, it is vital that the government also plays a leading role in supporting veterans across UK.”
