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.
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 are not perfect, there may be some resources and organisations that we have missed.
Because when Veterans work together, they make life better for Veterans.
The Veterans-Assist 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. If you are looking for information about services or support organisations you may be able to find what you need here.
We aim to enhance the welfare of the veterans community in Scotland by acting as the prime vehicle for: joint working between its member charities; for the dissemination of information to its members and the coordination of joint approaches to UK; Scottish Government; Local Authorities and other organisations whose business is of benefit to veterans.
Here's what you need to know about Veterans Scotland - Scotland's membership charity for the Armed Forces community.

It is an expectation that the nation will look after those who look after us. This commitment is made in recognition of the sacrifices you make on behalf of the country.

This booklet includes details of the Armed Forces and Veterans Champions who have been established across Scotland to ensure that those who are serving and have served are not disadvantaged as a result of their service. It also brings together a wide range of help available to both the Armed Forces Community and those supporting them, the majority of which is available via the Internet. It lists some but not all of the organisations that provide support and advice to the Armed Forces Community. Additional information is available from the Veterans-Assist website.
