The Scottish Government, along with the other governments of the United Kingdom, launched the Strategy For Our Veterans in November 2018. The strategy sets out the vision, principles and aims which will drive our support for veterans in the future. It covers 6 themes:
- community and relationships
- employment, education and skills
- finance and debt
- health and wellbeing
- making a home in civilian society
- veterans and the law
We are consulting with stakeholders on the services and support for veterans in Scotland. The consultation will cover public, private and third sector stakeholders, including veterans charities and representative groups of veterans themselves.
The work of the Scottish Veterans Commissioner will also play an important part of the evidence to inform how we implement the strategy in Scotland.
