New map to help services to veterans
If you provide or are planning to provide services to veterans in Scotland, then a new online resource is available for use. A Map focusing on veterans aged between 26 and 65, where the greatest need for additional support lies, can now be found online, along with maps showing veterans in receipt of an AFPS occupational pension and those in receipt of a War Disability pension.
The Maps, which reveal where concentrations of veterans are to be found, are derived from a Scottish Government study on the health of veterans and on data recently released by the MOD and were launched on 4 October 2011.
The maps will be made available to health boards, local authorities and charities to help them plan and deliver their services to veterans in the future.
