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.
This year’s Scottish Veterans Fund is now open for bids from projects that improve the lives of former service personnel or their families. The funding pot for this year has been increased to £500,000 and individual projects can bid up to a limit of £50,000 per year. This year the fund is particularly looking to support bids which promote collaboration and partnership from amongst and out with the veterans charitable sector, as well as bids which include support to early service leavers.
Since the fund’s inception in 2008 more than 180 projects have been supported receiving more than £1.7 million.
Copies of the grant application form and application guidance document are available via the links below. Please note these have been updated from previous years forms and guidance.
Contact details and information on support for bids can be found in both the application guidance and the application form.
The closing date for applications is 12 November 2021.
