Scottish Veterans Commissioner

I am delighted to share with you my second report on the Provision of Information on Housing for Service Leavers and Veterans in Scotland (http://www.gov.scot/…/veterans-commissioner/Publications/Ho…), which was published today.

Through my investigations and conversations with veterans and many others, I found that information on housing can be inconsistent, confusing and difficult to find. I have highlighted a number of examples of good practice and recommended some fairly straightforward changes which I believe would significantly improve the quality and accessibility of this information for the ex-Service community. If Scotland is to be a destination of choice for these individuals and families then we need to ensure they have access to relevant, up-to-date information that helps them decide where they want to settle and how they secure appropriate housing. I hope this report goes some way to helping improve this aspect of support for our veterans.

My thanks to all those individuals and organisations who took the time to share their experiences and views with me – I look forward to working with you all in future.
