The Veterans' Advocacy People
For veterans and their families after military service
How can The Advocacy People help?
It can be hard to make the move to civilian life on discharge from the armed forces.
Knowing where to start and who can help can be overwhelming and things can go wrong.
All our Veterans’ Advocates have first-hand experience of military life. They understand that the transition to civilian life can be very difficult and can support you when you run into problems. Here are some examples:
applying for benefits and pensions
take time to understand your situation
help you decide what you want to achieve
help you decide what you want to do and how you want to do it
act on your direction if you don’t feel able to take action yourself
help you write letters and make phone calls to the right people
offer advice or opinions about what is best for you
make choices or decisions on your behalf
provide legal advice or representation
Who is the service for?
Anyone with a military background and their close family members or partners. It does not matter how long was spent in service, or how long ago.
Who can refer?
You can refer yourself, or someone else with their consent.
Someone else can refer you, with your consent.
