Criteria for support

  • Have you served for one day or more in the Armed Forces or Reserves?
  • Do you consider yourself to have a mental or physical health condition? This does not need to be linked to your time in service.
  • Are you unemployed and thinking about moving back into work? We may also be able to help if you are being made redundant, are absent through long-term sickness, or your role negatively impacts your health.
