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.

Applying to the Aged Veterans Fund

We are pleased to announce the launch of the first year of the Aged Veterans Fund, which has £25 million available over 5 years. It will fund projects that support non-core health, wellbeing and social care needs for older veterans (born before 1 January 1950), including surviving World War 2 veterans, those who undertook National Service and other voluntary enlisted veterans who may need some focused support in relation to their health and social care needs.

Grants of up to £1 million are available to lead organisations who will manage, support and ensure the delivery of a strategic portfolio of projects. If you are thinking of applying, do make sure you read and understand the information in the relevant guidance notes, as this will help you to decide if your project is eligible and meets our criteria.
