Poppyscotland is at the forefront of research into the needs of Scotland’s ex-Servicemen and women.  We believe in taking an evidence-led approach, where services are developed on the basis of sound, empirical evidence.  Our research helps to inform Scottish and local government policy on welfare provision for the ex-Service community and is shared amongst many other charities within the veterans’ sector.
