SSAFA – Our Pledge to our Armed Forces, Veterans and their Families 2017-2022
1 day ago
We are immensely proud that, in 2016 alone, we assisted more than 67,000 individuals in many different ways, but always to alleviate suffering and hardship. It is imperative that we balance the needs of our beneficiaries alongside a structured plan which ensures that the charity maintains financial sustainability in what is likely to be a challenging climate up to 2022 and beyond.

Welcome to Veterans-Assist Scotland

We recognise that for many Veterans and their families, some aspects of life after leaving the Services can be challenging.  With over 60 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.

This website has been set up to 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 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.

We are  not perfect, so there may be some resources and organisations that we have missed.   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.

  • strengthening local government delivery of the covenant

  • Armed Forces Covenant: local grants

  • a single grant to produce a map of need for the Covenant Fund
