Armed Forces Champion

Councillor Jason McNally is Peterborough’s Armed Forces Champion. He started in the position in May 2024.

One of the key roles of the Armed Forces Champion is to be the point of contact for queries from ex-Forces personnel who need help and assistance. Councillor McNally will be able to signpost people to relevant support, or help unblock any problems that people have accessing services.

Councillor McNally will also chair a partnership board, involving a number of organisations that support Forces personnel and veterans, which will help to bid for funds from the Armed Forces Covenant grant scheme. The partnership will also review council policies to ensure they can meet the needs of ex-Forces personnel.

For more information and contact details, please view Councillor McNally's page on the Democracy Peterborough website.

"I am Jason McNally, the newly appointed Armed Forces Champion. My family is steeped in military life, both my father and grandfather served in full colour service. I started my working career as a coal miner in the Nottinghamshire coal fields in the 1980s, however, in the early 1990s, I joined the British Army.

Joining the British Army changed my life forever. Throughout my career, I have been posted to various locations all over the world in various combat operations. These included Bosnia United Nations, Bosnia NATO, Kosovo, Iraq and, finally, Cyprus as Signals Detachment Commander with the United Nations in Nicosia.

I am truly honoured to be appointed as your Armed Forces Champion and I intend to honour our serving Armed Forces and Veterans wholeheartedly."
