On Armistice Day 2022, we remember the fallen of two world wars and ensuing conflicts and join the rest of Wales and the UK in a two minute silence at 11am today (Friday, November 11).
The Council continues to support its Armed Forces community and veterans through our award-winning Armed Forces Veterans Service.
The Armed Forces Veterans Service offers help and support to those who need it the most. It is the first point of contact for many veterans and their families living in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Councillor Maureen Webber, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council Deputy Leader and Armed Forces Champion, said: “This Council is proud of its association with its Armed Forces community, past and present. We owe them all so much.
“At this time of year, we all reflect on sacrifices made, remembering those who never returned from war to the love of their families. The act of Remembrance is our way of commemorating their lives. We will remember, and we will never forget.
”It is also important that all of our veterans, and their families, know that the Council’s Armed Forces Veterans Service is there to provide help, support and guidance whenever they need it."
The Council’s Armed Forces Veterans Service offers confidential support and guidance to veterans living in the County Borough and their families all year around. It provides a wide range of assistance on subjects such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Housing, Adult Social Care, Benefits, Finances and Employment.
