Veteran Welfare Service


Tel: 0808 1914 2 18

WVS Kentigern House , MP600, 65 Brown Street, Glasgow G2 8EX

The Veterans Welfare Service (VWS) is committed to enhancing the quality of life for Veterans and beneficiaries of pensions (War and Service) and compensation schemes, and all their dependants. It also focuses upon providing support that will enable the seamless transition from Service to Civilian life, assist bereaved families or respond to key life events that present welfare needs.

It gives support and advice in the areas of:

War Disablement pension, Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, DWP Benefits, Housing, Employment Health and Bereavement.

It achieves this by adopting a single central coordinating role that facilitates access to all appropriate services. The VWS provides a caseworker approach that offers professional help and guidance through either telephone contact or a dedicated visiting service. Under the Veterans UK the VWS works in collaborative partnership with the tri-Service, ex-Service charities, statutory and non-statutory bodies, local community service providers and Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committee's to deliver a quality welfare service that promotes independence, maintains dignity and provides continuous support through life.
