Changing the world for Veterans and their families. Direct Support, when and where it is needed.

About Us – Our Story

Forgotten Veterans UK (FVUK) was set up to support all Service Veterans in need. Whilst we look to the past to commemorate and honour those that gave their lives in the service of their Country we look to the future for those Veterans whose vision of the future is less clear.  This can sometimes be because of experiences within the services, but not always.  We recognise that people from all walks of life experience issues that they find difficult at times, and servicemen and women are no different to that. But in addition often these service veterans might have experienced thing within the service that has and will affect them for the rest of their lives.

Support:

The Buddy Scheme is a service where we pair up stronger Veterans with the more vulnerable in our community. The scheme is not just for veterans but also their families as we know the veterans problems impact everyone around them. We have an array of buddies available to suit the needs of the proportion of clients, it is a online or telephone service which we will pick up the cost for.

We are not here to council or treat traumas and have a programme in place if the recipient needs some more specialist support, and we will pass you onto reputable organisations and charities if you fit there  criteria and are happy for us to do so.
