People with sight loss in the West of Scotland will benefit from two new services being established in Paisley. Scottish charity Royal Blind is set to build a new 54 bedroom nursing home specialising in the care of visually impaired older people on Hawkhead Road in Paisley. The home will build on the success of Braeside House, the charity’s specialist nursing home for visual impaired older people in the Liberton area of Edinburgh. This will be the first time that Royal Blind has dedicated facilities on the ground in the West of Scotland.

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!!
