A CONSORTIUM of organisations, led by PoppyScotland, has been awarded £4 million from the Aged Veterans fund.

Unforgotten Forces, a collaboration of 14 leading organisations, will undertake a three-year programme of support for older veterans and their families in Scotland, delivering a range of new services and enhancements including advice, access to healthcare, social isolation, respite, creative activities and events for those in care settings.

Understand
Mark Bibbey, chief executive at Poppyscotland, said: ‘We want people to understand that key organisations in the area of support provision have joined forces to provide a more holistic provision for aged veterans.
‘The essence is strength in numbers and we want the identity of our consortium to reflect this.’
