Anyone who has served one day and more with the British Armed Forces as a Regular, Reservist, National Serviceman or Merchant Mariner may be entitled to extra opportunities and support, which can help in later life.

We offer older ex-Armed Forces personnel tailored information and advice.  We also offer friendship through our Comradeship Circles, which bring older ex-Armed Forces personnel together in group telephone chats.

We lead Unforgotten Forces, Scotland’s charity partnership to improve the health and wellbeing of older ex-Armed Forces personnel. Through this we offer free training, information and networking opportunities to community groups and services that seek to improve how they support older ex-Armed Forces personnel.
