Veterans and ex-Service charities across Scotland are to benefit from support from the Scottish Veterans Fund for areas such as the transition from military to civilian life, healthcare, housing and employment…
Established in 2008, the Scottish Veterans Fund has already allocated more than £1.3 million to over 150 projects that provide advice, help and support to veterans across Scotland, ranging from employability and housing support to befriending and wellbeing projects.
Organisations are encouraged to bid for funding to deliver projects tackling these issues and those offering new or innovative approaches to increasing opportunities for veterans.
This year’s round of funding completes the current allocation of around £600,000 of funding, including £240,000 from Standard Life Aberdeen and £360,000 from the Scottish Government, made available through the Scottish Veterans Fund in the three years to 2019/20.
The Scottish Veterans Fund is now open to applications until 30 November 2018. As this is the last year of the current Fund applicants are only able to submit bids for one year projects.

Speaking at the 2018 Armed Forces and Veterans Champions Annual Gathering in Edinburgh, Veterans Minster Graeme Dey said: “Veterans enrich our society and deserve the highest level of advice, support and care, which is why the Scottish Government remains committed to supporting them and their families.
