Housing Covenant support for Service families and the Bereaved
Whether you are living on or off base, renting or thinking about buying a home, there is advice and support available to you.
With the Forces Help to Buy scheme your family can borrow up to £25,000 interest free over 10 years to help create a deposit for a new home.
Another way to get financial help is through the government’s affordable home ownership schemes.
Own your own home provides a range of schemes that make home-buying more affordable.
The Joint Service Housing Advice Office (JSHAO) provides serving personnel and their dependants with civilian housing information for those wishing to move to civilian accommodation at any time in their career, and for those during resettlement to assist with the transition to civilian life.
The Scottish Government have created a Veterans Portal which provides information on services for transitioning service personnel and their families and those currently serving who are considering living in Scotland in the future.
