DMWS is extremely proud to be Veterans’ Gateway newest referral partner and to be able to do what we do best; to help those who serve and their family during their most critical time of need.
Veterans’ Gateway put veterans and their families in touch with the organisations best placed to help with the information, advice and support they need – from healthcare and housing to employability, finances, personal relationships and more. This new first point of contact, which was launched in June, is the first of its kind, bringing together Military charities and other support organisations under one roof to make finding the right support easier and quicker.
Veterans’ Gateway is made up of a consortium of Armed Forces charities including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist working together with a group of referral partners of which DMWS is proud to be one. We are also pleased to announce that we have already successfully supported a number of referred veterans.
One such case is of a family with 3 generations of serving and former serving RAF personnel. Both father and son suffered a stroke on the same day, treated in hospital an hour away from home. Due to the severity of the condition and additional complications the father could not be transferred to a local hospital.
