Veterans UK - GOV.UK
Veterans UK administers the armed forces pension schemes and compensation payments for those injured or bereaved through service.
Veterans UK is part of the Ministry of Defence.
The Veterans Welfare Service (VWS) is committed to enhancing the quality of life for veterans and beneficiaries of Veterans UK pensions and compensation schemes, and all their dependents. We provide support to enable the seamless transition from service to civilian life, assist bereaved families or respond to life events that present welfare needs. We achieve this by facilitating access to all appropriate services.
VWS caseworkers offer one to one professional help and guidance by telephone, or if needed, during a home visit.
Under Veterans UK, the VWS works in partnerships with the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force, ex-service charities, statutory and non-statutory bodies, local community service providers and the Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committees to provide a quality welfare service that promotes independence, maintains dignity and provides continuous support through life.
We also provide welfare support for veterans of any age, and their families through the Veterans Welfare Service and the Veterans UK helpline: 0808 1914 2 18.
