DSC in Veterans World Magazine

Written by

DSC’s armed forces research is featured in the Veterans World Magazine

Do you know what Fishing for Heroes does? How about Surf Action? These are just two of the 2,200 Armed Forces Charities out there which are set up to help serving and ex-Service personnel and their families. This new project, from the Directory of Social Change, helps you to navigate the Armed Forces charity sector through an online search facility comprising of information from thousands of Armed Forces charities.

With so many charities out there, it can be hard to know where to start. If you’re a veteran or still serving in the Forces, knowing what provisions exist and how to apply for support can be a daunting task. Equally, for charities and organisations, trying to find other charities to work with can be very difficult. Fortunately, all the hard work has now been done for you and all the information you need is available online for free. This new website is an independent and dedicated Armed Forces charity resource, providing clarity and direction through the sector. If you are a past or present serving member of the UK Armed Forces, a family member or dependant, or if you represent an organisation working with the UK Armed Forces, then this new project is tailored for you. It’s also there to help other people interested in the sector such as policy makers and journalists. Individuals can use the web resource to search for Armed Forces charities that provide welfare support and general advice. Organisations can use the web resource to search for specific charities that could potentially provide grants or complementary services to your organisation. You can also use it to understand the type of charity provision in your area or to make contact with other charities that share your vision.
