Local communities can show their support for Service personnel past and present this summer, with up to £10,000 available to help fund an Armed Forces Day celebration in their local area... On Saturday 25 June this year, people across the nation will be joining local celebrations to say “Thank You” to members of the Armed Forces community - including current personnel, Reserves, veterans, cadets and families - for their contribution to the nation. And to ensure that Armed Forces Day can be celebrated across the country this summer, funding is available to anyone who wants to host an event - from city-wide parades and local fetes, to smaller neighbourhood get-togethers. Organisers can bid for up to £10,000 to help make their event, large or small, a success.

Welcome

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!!

 

Please take the time to complete our short survey to help inprove the Veterans Assist site.
