Applying to the Aged Veterans Fund We are pleased to announce the launch of the first year of the Aged Veterans Fund, which has £25 million available over 5 years. It will fund projects that support non-core health, wellbeing and social care needs for older veterans (born before 1 January 1950), including surviving World War 2 veterans, those who undertook National Service and other voluntary enlisted veterans who may need some focused support in relation to their health and social care needs.

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.
