SVC Recommendation 2: Scottish Veterans Fund
The Scottish Government should support proposals that promote employability and increase job opportunities amongst the veterans community as the priority when allocating resources from the Scottish Veterans Fund.
Scottish Government update:
When the Scottish Veterans Fund was relaunched in 2017 along with investment from Standard Life Aberdeen, a dedicated employability strand of funding was created to support projects helping veterans into employment.
SVC evaluation of status:
Implemented, but work should progress
