Veterans World promotes awareness of help, advice and support available to the veterans community.
Veterans World raises awareness of help, advice and support available to veterans and their families via organisations, government, the voluntary and charitable sectors, and is aimed at people who work in an advisory capacity with the public. Its distribution includes HM Prisons, NHS Primary Trusts, Local Authorities, Resettlement Officers, Mental Health care workers, Citizen Advice Bureaux and those who work with veterans organisations.
At Veterans UK we want to make sure that as many serving personnel, Veterans and their families are aware of the many kinds of support and advice available to them, when they need it, and that it is up to date.
To help us achieve this Veterans World is now a fully digital publication, available as a PDF and via the ISSUU website, and will no longer be produced as a paper version. This and future digital versions can be accessed via GOV.UK. Also, Veterans World will be now be issued six times a year, so we can publish more information about veterans services as quickly as possible.
If you previously received a paper copy, and we had your e-mail address on record, you will be sent a link to each new issue. If you would like to receive a link, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us if you are a Veteran or an Advisor and any organisation you are linked with, and we will add you to our distribution list.
We are now accepting article submissions for issue 37, which will be published in January 2016. Contributions are most welcome. If you have an article or press release that is suitable for Veterans World, to raise awareness of an initiative, scheme or organisation that offers help, advice or support to veterans, contact the Editorial Team with details:
