Transition

Transition to civilian life

There are a number of organisations and services available to assist with the transition process.

So much is done for us when we are in the Services; accommodation, meals, healthcare and tax are just a few examples.  It is only when we leave that most of us have to face for the first time problems and issues such as finding a GP, a decent school, a house and a job.  We hope that this section will give you a head start with these and other subjects in assisting you to make a successful transition.

If you in are settling in Scotland after life in the armed forces, these links will provide you with access to the organisations and information that can assist you to find a home, gain employment and settle into civil society, as well as links to sources of help and support that might be needed.

Transition to civilian lifeThe information in this section is grouped into the five major areas that you will need to consider in order to make a successful transition:

  • Employment – Finding the right job and making best use of your skills.
  • Education – For you and your children
  • Health – Establishing yourself with a GP, Dentist and other Health issues
  • Housing – Finding your new home,
  • Welfare – The additional support you may need.
