This site is not just for those who have just left the Services. Veteran support is a whole-life concept in both the public and charitable sectors. For many of us, our first job doesn’t work out as the right one; help is still available. A Service-related medical condition may get worse and limit what we can do; you may still be entitled to Compensation or fast-track NHS support. You may not be handling money matters well; there are people who will help.
In this section and the one entitled Veterans Organisations, we have tried to pull together a broad range of organisations that are committed to providing whole-life support to Veterans. We hope it is useful.
Veterans UK is part of Defence Business Services (DBS) within the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and administers the Armed Forces Pension Schemes serving around 900,000 members of the Armed Forces community. It also administers compensation payments for those injured or bereaved through service and provides a package of welfare support for veterans via a national Veterans Welfare Service and veterans helpline facility.
SSAFA provide lifelong support to anyone who is currently serving or has ever served in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force. We are here for you and your family, whenever and wherever you need us. We will always treat you with dignity and respect.
