We would like to thank the following organisations, which jointly fund the Armed Services Advice Project.
Poppyscotland provides financial support to those who have served in any of the Armed Forces, be it regular or reserve. This includes widows/widowers and dependants.
Army Benevolent Fund – The Soldiers’ Charity support soldiers, former soldiers and their families in times of need.
The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund provides practical, financial and – in some cases – emotional support to all members of the RAF family, from childhood through to old age. They help with issues from childcare and relationship difficulties to injury and disability, and from financial hardship and debt to illness and bereavement.
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity is the principal, and chosen, charity of the Royal Navy. Last year it gave £7.3m to people most in need: serving personnel, veterans and families. For those in uniform – in ships, squadrons, submarines, commando units and ashore – it boosts morale, improves facilities and eases the pressure that life in the Service can bring. Through their grant giving to other military charities they provide crucial support for parents and children as well as veterans experiencing difficulty with ill health or old age.
Seafarers UK is the leading maritime charity that supports and promotes the many organisations that look after seafarers in need, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines, together with their families.
SSAFA support those who serve in the Armed Forces and those who used to serve – even it was only for a single day. They also care for the families of both.
