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.  We also know that whether you have been “in” for 3 years or 30 years, or “out” for 6 weeks or 6 years, problems will arise and that you could use some help.

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.

Biggest survey into needs of Scotland's ex-Service community

Findings from the study, which is the most detailed analysis of the size and needs of the ex-Service community in Scotland to ever be carried out, also identified an ageing population and concerns over social isolation. 

 The Scottish research is derived from a comprehensive UK-wide household survey, undertaken by Poppyscotland’s parent charity The Royal British Legion. A similar study on a smaller scale was carried out in 2005. Though some problems affecting Scotland’s veterans appear to be more acute than elsewhere, the issues that have been identified in Scotland are similar overall to those across the rest of the UK. Poppyscotland believes that this new research will be beneficial in helping the ex-Service charity sector and public services better understand and address the current and future needs of veterans and their families living in Scotland.
