Forces Advice Project Scotland
Veterans who struggle to cope with a return to civilian life will
be able to get advice and support from a new £600,000 project to
help the armed forces community.
Former servicemen and women facing physical or psychological problems
and issues such as difficulty finding a job or housing will benefit
from the new Armed Forces Advice Project (Asap), which has been
set up by Poppyscotland, Citizens Advice Scotland and a number of
other support groups.
Anyone who is serving in the armed forces or has previously served,
and their families, will be able to access help through a national
helpline or by turning up at one of the 83 Citizens Advice Bureaux
Asap has been funded by Poppyscotland, the Royal Air Force Benevolent
Fund, The Maritime Charities Funding Group, ABF the Soldiers’ Charity,
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association Forces Help,
The Robertson Trust and Turn2us.
The national helpline is on 0845 231 0300
