The Housing Group

MedalIn Scotland, additional housing and accommodation for Veterans and their dependants is also provided by a number of independent charitable organisations. Some of these organisations are members of Veterans Scotland and they work to provide the best possible service to Veterans and their dependants. 

Properties range from hostel accommodation for single people to fully adapted houses for disabled Veterans' and their families.

Each of the participating charities qualifying criteria differ and these can range from being registered disabled at one end of the scale, to less stringent criteria at the other.

Further information on each of the charities is available on their own websites.

Deciding where to live is one of the most important choices you and your family will need to make on leaving the armed forces. It is never too early to think about where you will set up home. Whether you are due to leave in a year, a couple of months or have already left, there is support out there to help you. This leaflet sets out your housing options in Scotland and answers some of the questions you might have. It also gives you information about where you can go for further advice and support.

An updated copy of the Scottish Governments "A Scottish housing guide for people leaving the Armed Forces & ex-Service personnel" has now been published.  A PDF copy of the guide is available here.
