We are proud to be part of an expert network of organisations that help support the Armed Forces community in the UK and abroad through Veterans’ Gateway, the first point of contact for veterans and their families seeking support.
Veterans’ Gateway makes finding the right support easier and quicker – no matter where you are or what you 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 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 advisors 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, such as Forces Pension Society.
We are delighted to be part of the Veterans Gateway project, and will be answering simple questions about pension entitlement for those who seek advice through the Gateway. We hope that by doing this we will increase pensions understanding among veterans, replacing confusion and misunderstanding with clarity and confidence.
Veterans’ Gateway also has an extensive Self Help service, allowing veterans to search for help and advice independently. Visit here to learn more about Veterans’ Gateway. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
