    The Unforgotten Forces consortium was set up in 2017 with a £4 million award from the Aged Veterans Fund to undertake a three-year programme of support for veterans over the age of 65, and their families, in Scotland.

    We were the lead partner of Unforgotten Forces until 1st October 2020 when we handed over to Age Scotland.

    Unforgotten Forces has received a grant from the Scottish Government allowing it to continue delivering services in support to Scotland's older veterans. For more information on Unforgotten Forces visit the Age Scotland website.
