Scottish Veterans Fund 2020/21
Organisations that want to work with veterans and their families are being urged to apply to a fund that benefits former services personnel.
Veterans Minister Graeme Dey is to open the Scottish Veterans Fund (SVF) at the Armed Forces and Veterans Champions Gathering in Glasgow.
The fund, supported by the Scottish Government and Standard Life Aberdeen, backs projects that provide new or innovative approaches to improving the lives of veterans.
This year also sees the fund emphasise that it is open to supporting schemes that help the families of veterans, not just those who have previously served.
Since its inception in 2008, the fund has backed more than 150 projects across Scotland, investing more than £1.4m.
It is particularly aimed at helping
the veterans community overcome any disadvantage experienced as a result of service, as well as supporting projects that help veterans and their families successfully transition to civilian life. Read more
