What is the Veterans’ Gateway?
In November 2016 the Ministry of Defence announced £2 million of funding from the
Covenant Fund for a one-stop service to better support British Armed Forces veterans in
need. The service responds to calls from veterans’ charities and groups for help in navigating the wide range of
services and organisations set up to support those who have served in the Forces.
The service will be the first point of contact for veterans and their families to access information, advice and
support on a range of issues including healthcare, housing, and employment. It will allow information and
services from partners to be accessed from one place and all enquiries will be followed up to
ensure that veterans receive the right support.
The Veteran’s Gateway will provide website, online chat, phone line and text message
services available to any veteran, from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. Veterans can
access face-to-face support through the Veterans’ Gateway network of partners and
organisations across the UK and overseas
