Largest Gathering in Support of Armed Forces Covenant in Scotland
10 days ago
Monday, 10 October, Glasgow City played host to the largest Gathering in support of our Armed Forces and Military Veterans Community, including their families, in the UK to date. Veterans Scotland, the organisation behind the orchestration of this event paid tribute to the generosity of the City of Glasgow in providing the City Chambers as the event venue, and how the close partnership forged between the City of Glasgow, Veterans Scotland, The Scottish Government, representatives of all 3 Armed Services in Scotland and the Scottish Veterans Commissioner has led to the success of this ground-breaking event.

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!!
