Officers' Association Scotland is a charity providing life-changing support to former officers living in Scotland and their dependents.
They support those who have served, those still serving and their families. Support is available to people of all ages, whether difficulties have arisen during time in the Armed Forces or many years later.
Officers' Association Scotland offers practical advice, assistance and funding in the following areas:
- Tailored Support and Funding Grants are wide-ranging and can cover areas such as home repairs or adaptations, replacement household goods and clothing.
- Employment As well as one-to-one employment support, they offer Employment Support Grants for training, and work with partners to offer employment support to those facing barriers to work through vulnerability, disability, mental health conditions or because of a criminal conviction.
- Mobility Their grants can be used to fund mobility aids and adaptations, including motorised scooters and handrails for your home.
- Poppy Breaks Short breaks can be awarded where it would be beneficial to a client's wellbeing. These are assessed on a basis of welfare need and means.
- Housing Improvements and adaptations can be funded directly through their grants.
