MAC Meetings

The MAC Meetings

The MAC members meets every six months. Each meeting is held on the premises of the Royal British Legion, who also provide full administrative support for these meetings. The MAC also regularly reports their activity to the British Members’ Council (BMC) of the World Veterans Federation.

During every meeting, the MAC members share and discuss the challenges that some of the Service Personnel and veteran community face, with regards to their physical and mental wellbeing, what mechanisms are currently in place, and how to effectively support those who need help. The next research topic for the HVRT is also selected during the meetings. Below is a list of the minutes of the most recent MAC Meetings:
