 Veterans Scotland Information Guide

This booklet includes details of the Armed Forces and Veterans Champions who have been established across Scotland to ensure that those who are serving and have served are not disadvantaged as a result of their service. It also brings together a wide range of help available to both the Armed Forces Community and those supporting them, the majority of which is available via the Internet. It lists some but not all of the organisations that provide support and advice to the Armed Forces Community. Additional information is available from the Veterans-Assist website.
