Support for ex-service personnel and their families

Services available for ex-Armed Forces personnel and their families.

 

As the transition back to civilian life can present real challenges for some people, we have listed the support available in Dorset for ex-service personnel (also known as veterans*), their families and carers. We have also listed organisations outside of Dorset that can offer support and guidance.

 

*Veterans are defined as anyone who has served for at least one day in HM Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Navy Seafarers and Fishermen who have served in a vessel at a time when it was operated to facilitate military operations by HM Armed Forces.

 

Recent leavers
 

If you have recently left military service, you should have received a copy of the Service Leavers Guide from Veterans UK (opens in a new window) which contains helpful advice. You can also contact the free Veterans Helpline on 0808 1914218

 

Serving members of the Armed Forces
 

If you are a serving member of the Armed Forces and you require further information about any of the issues listed, please contact your Unit Welfare Officer in the first instance.
