Perhaps unsurprisingly for a village located on the edge of Salisbury Plain, we have a fairly high proportion of households with either current, or more especially, historic links to the Armed Forces. It’s worth noting that in the last couple of weeks, the government have launched a new website called Veterans’ Gateway, designed to be the first point of contact for Veterans and their families on issues ranging from healthcare and housing, to employability, finances, personal relationships and more.
Veterans’ Gateway is made up of a consortium of organisations and Armed Forces charities, including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist. They have connection with additional key referral organisations – both within and outside the Armed Forces sector – meaning that they can get you to the right organisation who can help. Veterans’ Gateway is funded by The Armed Forces Covenant, this is the first time a group of this kind has come together formally to deliver a service to help the Armed Forces community.
We will add the appropriate links to The Village Directory, so it is easily findable in the future.
