Service leavers and Veterans

This section provides Service leavers and Veterans with information about how the Covenant can help by removing disadvantages arising from Service life, or offering special provision if appropriate.

As you transition from military to civilian life it is important you know what support and advice is available to you. The Covenant can help you at this time in your life. As a veteran of the Armed Forces, you continue to be a part of the Armed Forces community. The Covenant can help you in your life as a veteran.

Some policies will apply to you and others will not. This section will direct you to the right place on GOV.UK and other trusted resources so that you can see what is available.

For further information on Government support available to veterans, as well as some key facts on veterans in the UK, please see the Veterans Factsheet 2020. Support and advice on operational legacy inquests and investigations is also available.
