With many organisations supporting the Armed Forces community, Veterans’ Gateway aims to be the first point of contact for veterans and their families who need support.
As the first point of contact, Veterans’ Gateway will help people find the right support easily and quickly – no matter where they are or what they need.
Veterans’ Gateway is made up of a consortium of Armed Forces charities including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist. A group of referral partners also back the service, allowing Veterans’ Gateway to refer people to specialist organisations both within and outside of the Armed Forces sector.
This is first time a group of charities in this area have come together formally to deliver such a service to benefit the Armed Forces community.
How does Veterans’ Gateway Work?
Veterans’ Gateway gives access to a network of organisations, making it easy for veterans and their families to connect with the help, advice and support they need from their first point of contact.
Their team of advisers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and many are veterans themselves. They assess people at the first point of contact, ensuring they are quickly referred to the organisation that is best placed to support them.
Veterans’ Gateway also has an extensive Self Help service, allowing veterans to search for help and advice independently. It covers a range of support for veterans and their families, including housing, finances, employment and more.
