MSP Encourages Organisations to Apply for Veterans Funding

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed an announcement of funding for veterans and ex-Service charities across Scotland.

Organisations are being encouraged to bid for funding to deliver projects tackling issues including the transition from military to civilian life, healthcare, housing and employment.

Funding is also being offered for those who could provide new or innovative approaches to increasing opportunities for Veterans.

Last month, Mr Stevenson spoke in a Scottish Parliament debate on help and services available for Armed Forces Veterans.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“In the past decade, the Scottish Veterans Fund has provided more than £1million to a host of ex-Service charities and organisations.

“Veterans enrich our society and deserve the highest level of advice, support and care.

“This is why the Scottish Government remain committed to supporting them and their families.

“More than 150 projects throughout Scotland have benefited since 2008 and I would encourage organisations in the North-East to look at whether they would be eligible for funding.”

Chris Hughes, Executive Chairman of Veterans Scotland said:

“Veterans Scotland welcomes this continuing support which will directly benefit those leaving the Services and veterans and their families.”
