Veterans World


The latest issue of Veterans World is now online, you can view the magazine as a standard PDF on GOV.UK or via ISSUU, a digital publishing platform that’s free to access.
Veterans World raises awareness of help, advice and support available to veterans and their families via organisations, government, the voluntary and charitable sectors, and is aimed at people who work in an advisory capacity with the public. Its distribution includes HM Prisons, NHS Primary Trusts, Local Authorities, Resettlement Officers, Mental Health care workers, Citizen Advice Bureaux and those who work with veterans organisations.
At Veterans UK we want to make sure that as many Serving Personnel, Veterans and their families are aware of the many kinds of support and advice available to them, when they need it, and that it is up to date.  With that in mind please pass this email on to anyone else in your organisation or who you work with that advises or who may advise veterans and their families.

If you previously received a paper copy, and we had your e-mail address on record, you will be sent a link to each new issue.  If  you would like to receive a link, please send an e-mail to Veterans-UK-veteransworld@mod.uk telling us if you are a Veteran or an Advisor and any organisation you are linked with, and we will add you to our distribution list.

We are now accepting article submissions for issue 38, which will be published in April 2016. Contributions are most welcome. If you have an article or press release that is suitable for Veterans World, to raise awareness of an initiative, scheme or organisation that offers help, advice or support to veterans, contact the Editorial Team with details:
