This project evaluated the Unforgotten Voices Project, a project which involved third sector organisations delivering services to older veterans based in Scotland.
Unforgotten Forces was a 3-year project delivered between 2017 and 2020. It was funded by the Aged Veterans Fund through the MoD Libor funds. The Unforgotten Forces project, an innovative Poppyscotland led consortium of complementary partners, aimed to deliver services to enhance the existing support for older veterans in addressing loneliness and isolation by providing respite breaks, a new day centre, therapeutic programmes in care homes and advice on issues such as benefits, support for those in medical pathways and help with essential transport.
