About the ISPA
The ISPA is a not for profit ex-service organisation (ESO) formed to assist, advise and support serving and ex-serving men and women and their famalies dealing with the various rehabilitation and compensation schemes applicable to their military service.
The ISPA formed back in 1995 because no other organisation catered for non war veterans. Those with peacetime service had no-one to turn to for support, advice or representation. Today, due to constant lobbying and awareness raising by the ISPA most ESO's have pension officers trained in the SRCA & MRCA and an understanding of non veteran needs. The Training and Information Program (TIP) which used to teach the VEA and welfare aspect introduced training for the SRCA and its impact with the VEA and other benefits.
Unfortunately the ISPA has had to cease lobbying and representation with low membership numbers reducing its financial abilities associated with advocacy work.
We are now concentrating on the construction of a memorial dedicated to those killed and injured in peacetime service.
