The first point of contact for veterans seeking support

There are literally hundreds of charities and organisations out there that can help veterans, but where do you start to look to find out what’s available and even then, which one can help you? The Veterans’ Gateway has been set in place to be the first point of contact. Many of the team are veterans themselves so they understand the issues that people face after leaving the Armed Forces.

The team can make it quick and easy by being your first point of contact for whatever support you need, whether you are based in the UK or abroad. They work with people on a one-to-one basis, connecting them with the right support as soon as possible.

Who is part of Veterans’ Gateway?

Veterans’ Gateway is made up of a consortium of organisations and Armed Forces charities, including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist.

Our connection with additional key referral partners and information organisations – both within and outside the Armed Forces sector – means we can get you to the right organisation who can help.

Funded by The Armed Forces Covenant, this is the first time a group of this kind has come together formally to deliver a service to help the Armed Forces community.
