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.

New Year boost for Scottish charities

  Applications open for charges exemption scheme.

Charities and sports clubs across Scotland are set to be able to keep more of the money they raise in 2015 and pay less on bills.

Applications open today for a new scheme to assist eligible organisations with the payment of water and sewerage charges.

The Scottish Government scheme will mean that charities registered with the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) and Community Amateur Sports Clubs, which meet the scheme requirements and which have an income of less than £200,000 will no longer need to pay water and sewerage charges – and those with incomes between £200,000 and £300,000 will pay a reduced rate.
