Apply to the Scottish Veterans Fund

Guidance and an application form for the 2023 to 2024 fund.


The Scottish Government is clear that no one should suffer disadvantage as a result of military service. The Scottish Veterans Fund (SVF) was established by the Scottish Government in 2008 and has a broad remit to support projects that benefit ex-Service personnel and their families in Scotland.

The SVF is particularly aimed at those projects that will help the veterans community to overcome any disadvantage experienced as a result of service; those supporting veterans and their families to achieve a successful transition to civilian life; and projects that aim to make Scotland the most attractive place to be for those leaving Service life.

The SVF is administered by the Scottish Government’s Veterans Unit, who handle receipt of applications and distribution of funds. Decisions on which bids receive funding from the SVF are made by Scottish Ministers, based on assessments and recommendations made by the SVF Independent Panel, which is selected and chaired by the Scottish Veterans Commissioner.

The Scottish Veterans Fund is now closed for applications. The deadline to submit an application was 19 November 2022. 

Applications received after that deadline will not be accepted.
