Support for Veterans During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The current Coronavirus situation represents a very difficult and uncertain time for us all and I know many of you will be worried about the impact the measures we are being told to undertake will have on your lives.

I would continue to urge everyone to follow the official guidance issued by the UK and Scottish Governments and by the NHS. I would also ask you to look out for each other and within the boundaries currently put in place by Government, to keep in touch or help those who you know may be particularly vulnerable or experiencing social isolation. 

Below are some helpful links where you can find further information, support and advice for you and your families.
