Veterans Scotland - Scottish Veterans Fund


The fund, supported by the Scottish Government, backs projects that provide new or innovative approaches to improving the lives of Veterans. This year the fund is particularly looking to support bids which promote collaboration and partnership from amongst and out with the veterans charitable sector, as well as bids which include support to early service leavers.

Projects must include the sustainable delivery of one or more of the following aims:

  • support access for veterans and their families to health and social care; housing; employment, skills and education; financial advice; or any other services provided by the public or third sector; as well as those going through the justice system.
  • support veterans and their families in their meaningful inclusion in civilian life, including those that promote positive health and wellbeing and those that aid social integration, with an emphasis on inclusion amongst civilian / non-military communities.
  • support successful transition to civilian life following service for the service person and their family.
  • raise awareness of veterans and their families amongst the general public, emphasising their positive contribution to society and local communities.
