We are Veterans. We recognise that for many Veterans and their families, aspects of life after leaving the Services can be challenging. With over 50 Veterans’ organisations in Scotland alone, we understand that it can be frustrating to find just the right person to help with a problem. And we know that whether you have been “in” for 3 years or 30 years, or “out” for 6 weeks or 6 years, problems will arise that could use some help.
So we have set up this website which we believe will put in one place most of the resources you might need. Whether it is finding the right school or college for you or your kids; options for somewhere to live; getting access to a War Disablement pension; or finding a route into employment, you will find it here, together with much more. You will find some topics duplicated under more than one heading; this is for ease of access and to make it more likely that you will find what you need.
For those who work in Veterans support organisations, please check out the Resources tab; there may be something useful for you there.
And because we aren’t perfect, there may be some resources and organisations that we have missed. So if you know of some, please let us know through the Contacts tab so we can share it. Because when Veterans work together, they make life better for Veterans.
So what are you waiting for – get in there!!
Working together for Scottish Veterans
Scotland is an environment where veterans are regarded as an asset to society.
The Forces in Mind Trust Reports
The aim of the Forces in Mind Trust is to provide an evidence base that will influence and underpin policy making and service delivery in order to enable ex-Service personnel and their families to lead successful civilian lives. They have commissioned research to contribute to a solid evidence base from which to inform, influence and underpin policy making and service delivery. Copies of the reports are available on their website (Link here).

This year there are different eligibility rules and timescales for each of the priorities. These are listed below. It is important to read and understand these as we will not assess applications which are ineligible to apply to a particular priority. Follow the link here for further information.
