The Veteran's Guide to Later Life in Scotland

Veterans chatting on bench

Past military service can open the door to extra support and opportunities. NHS Boards and councils have duties under the Armed Forces Covenant, the nation’s promise that veterans will be treated fairly. There are also many charities dedicated to supporting
this community.

Many organisations will consider you a veteran if you have served, and been paid for, even just one day in uniform with HM Armed Forces. So if you are aged 60 plus and were a regular, reservist, did National Service or supported a military operation while in the Merchant Navy, this guide is for you.
