Annual Review 2011/12: Welfare Services
Poppyscotland continues to lead the Veterans Scotland working group on supported employment and, in our role as lead of the Support pillar of Veterans Scotland, we chair the working groups on Grants to Individuals, Grants to Organisations and Advice.
Poppyscotland continues to participate in the Scottish Prison Service Veterans In-reach working group. VICS (veterans in custodial services) is a nationally (UK) adopted approach now being applied by the Scottish Prison Service to identify and support veterans in prison. In Scotland, this is being extended to a newly-developed induction programme for new prisoners and also prison officers, to make them aware of the support mechanisms they can access.
