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.
The ‘Positive Futures’ paper develops the thinking and takes account of ‘big picture’ developments since the 2015 ‘Transition in Scotland‘ report was prepared by my predecessor, Eric Fraser. As well as economic and demographic change, and changes afoot in our Armed Forces, it takes account of the vision and 2028 outcomes set out in the first ever UK-wide, long-term Strategy for our Veterans and initial findings from the public consultation on the Strategy.
This initial paper sets the scene for a series of short papers on different aspects of transition, which will contain specific recommendations for Government, the first of which, looking at employment, skills and learning is planned for next spring.
We’ll also be sharing the experiences of some of the Service leavers we’ve spoken with, including their journeys, how they found the process, and the support they accessed. You can read these here.
