with easier to find information about veterans support services.

The Veterans UK website has been
overhauled with the help of veterans and their families. Finding your way
around it is much simpler and the language used is easier to understand too.
You can find new content ‘hubs’
from the homepage or via an online search. Each focuses on specific needs of
veterans and their families.
One of these hubs is called ‘Help
and support when a Veteran or Service Person dies’. It is aimed at those who
have suffered a bereavement and brings together everything needed, including
forms, information about money that might be available and details of wellbeing
The new ‘Help and welfare for
Veterans and those leaving the Armed Forces’ hub sets out the support available
for those moving to civilian life and those who are already veterans.
There’s also a hub for help with
compensation claims for injuries as a result of service in the Armed Forces.
It’s now a lot clearer on who is eligible for the schemes, so those with a
claim can come straight to us, for free, without any need to engage a solicitor
or claims management company.
Online claim forms will be added
later this year to help speed up services and give you even easier access to
compensation payments. It’s all part of a bigger modernisation project to help
you know what services we offer and how to access them. We’re also modernising
our internal processes, freeing up more time to support veterans and their
always welcome, so please contact us if you have a comment about the website’s
structure or information. You can also keep up to date via the ‘MOD Veterans
UK’ Facebook and Twitter accounts.
