Help For Heroes - A fight for Veterans living with chronic pain

#1 Post by CharlieOneSix » Sat May 18, 2024 10:30 am

Please consider signing this petition so we can reach a 100,000 total. It will then be presented to Government and will then be debated in the House of Commons.

The petition is calling for an end to compensation being classed as income when considering benefits and pensions. The aim is to put pressure on the Government to remove unfair barriers to financial support for veterans, including amputees and those suffering from chronic pain.

A noble cause.
Did I understand it right - it's for the UK citizens?

It is a UK charity but all they ask for is name and email address when you support the petition. I couldn't find anywhere where they exclude support from non-UK citizens...
