Support for Veterans

The Scottish Veterans Commissioner is not an ombudsman, therefore does not have the power to investigate individual cases or provide direct support.

However, if you are a member of the veterans community seeking information, advice or support, the following services can help.

Veterans Gateway

Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Veterans Gateway acts as a first point of contact, working to connect you with the most suitable support services as early as possible. You can contact Veterans Gateway using one of the methods listed here.

Veterans Assist

Veterans Assist – as part of Veterans Scotland – offers a useful website designed to signpost Armed Forces personnel and their families to a range of services best placed to help with the information, advice and support they need from across Scotland.

For more information or to contact Veterans Assist, visit here.

Unforgotten Forces

If you are a veteran over the age of 60 and are seeking support, or you wish to refer an older veteran for support, Unforgotten Forces is a consortium of 17 organisations led by Age Scotland to deliver services in a range of areas.

You can get more information about the partners and getting in touch here.
