National commemoration to mark the end of combat operations in Afghanistan - Friday 13th March 2015
11 days ago
The Prime Minister has announced that a service of commemoration will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral on 13 March 2015, to mark the end of combat operations in Afghanistan, and to honour the contribution of all those in the UK who supported the campaign effort between 2001 to 2014. A parade made up of serving personnel and veterans who fought in Afghanistan will be undertaken after the service, followed by a reception at Guildhall for serving personnel and a concurrent reception for veterans to be hosted in the vicinity of Wellington Barracks; a VVIP will attend the latter event at Wellington Barracks, and meet veterans.

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!!
