Stoll joins key military charities for Veterans’ Gateway

We’re proud to be part of the new Veterans’ Gateway service which promises to be the first point of contact for Veterans and their families seeking support.

Independent research commissioned by Veterans’ Gateway shows the military charity sector currently leaves two-thirds (64 per cent) of Veterans ‘confused’, while one-fifth (20 per cent) of veterans having been referred to between three and 10 charities before eventually finding support.

Veterans’ Gateway aims to make this process easier by assessing needs at the first point of contact and connecting people with the right help when they need it, wherever they are.

The service has a network of over 30 expert partners, including Stoll, coming from across the military and non-military not for profit sector. With more partners being added, the service can help on a number of areas, including:

–          Housing
–          Employment
–          Finances
–          Living independently
–          Mental wellbeing
–          Physical health
–          Families and communities

Craig Slicker, 43 year-old former Lance Corporal in the Army:

“When I was told I was leaving, I was given six weeks to find a job and after being in the Army so long, it was a shock to the system. I didn’t know what I could do or what I wanted to do, or where I could turn for advice. A service like Veterans’ Gateway would have been hugely helpful because I had no idea how to find out what support was available to me. I will definitely use it because I’m still struggling financially, just getting used to being paid weekly is a challenge and trying to balance the bills, and I’m still looking for a job that suits my skills.”
