Ex Forces support in North Yorkshire 

Support information is available on our Armed Forces Community Covenant page.

Veterans' Gateway

This new £2 million service promises to revolutionise a military charity sector that currently leaves over half of veterans “confused,” by providing a first point of contact for those seeking support.

Funded by the Ministry of Defence, it will improve access to welfare services and speed-up the time it takes for veterans to receive the support they deserve.

The new 24-hour online chat, phone, and text message service is partly manned by veterans who have been trained to help the growing British Armed Forces community.

Veterans and their dependants will be able to access support services in physical health, financial support, help with independent living, housing, mental well-being, and employment. 

Visit the Veterans' Gateway website to find out more.

Free app

The Veterans' Gateway have launched a new free app which is available for android Apple devices. The app helps veterans find support organisations in their local area. It also enables you to call, email or have a live chat 24/7 with the Veterans' Gateway Connect Assist advisers.
