Military Advocacy Service
When military personnel are discharged from the armed forces they can find it hard to access the services and support they need to begin and maintain a new life in the civilian community. They may face difficulties several years after they leave their military role.
Those who face a complex mixture of health, housing, financial, family and social problems may need specialist support, which understands the distinct needs of veterans, to help them get their lives back on track.
Military Advocacy offers high quality, person-centred advocacy, fully understanding of the needs of veterans. They work to uphold the promise of the MOD Armed Forces Covenant, aiming to ensure that veterans receive the recognition and fair treatment they deserve, without disadvantage.
