We provide free support for veterans and their families, including a helpline, Veterans Welfare Service and injury/bereavement compensation scheme payments.
We also provide welfare support for veterans of any age, and their families through the Veterans Welfare Service and the Veterans UK helpline: 0808 1914 218.
Our helpline staff offer specific advice on war disablement pension and armed forces compensation scheme claims. The helpline also offers advice on other issues including benefits, pensions, loans and grants, emergency accommodation, finding a job, retraining, health issues, welfare concerns, service records and medals.
We also have up to date information on central/local government and ex service organisations, and other voluntary groups.
