Help for HM Forces Veterans 

When a member of the Armed Forces leaves the services, either through ill health, injury or end of service, it can come as a very big shock returning to civvy street.

Everything they knew or had has suddenly vanished and they can feel helpless in what is to them an alien world where no one appears, to them, to care about where they’ve been, what they’ve seen or done for their country.

This is why so many ex-forces personnel end up on the streets with no home to go to or find a job they can settle in to. As a result some veterans end up living in poverty and alone except for their recurring nightmares of what they went through.

The MVT was contacted by Lisa Manners who came across our website whilst searching on the internet for possible help for her grandad, who is a veteran himself, to put together a guide for ex-forces personnel to help them navigate through the maze of government departments and charities, who can offer help, advice and assistance to all ex-forces veterans no matter how old or what war/conflict or arm of service they served in.

It is full of great contacts for virtually everything under the sun, but if you come across another charity or resource which you think would be of use to a military veteran then please email the details to the website manager at and he will pass them on to Lisa to include in her guide.

The MVT is always proud to support our armed forces veterans as many of our members are veterans themselves, and we honour them and their memory by restoring the vehicles they used in service of our country and indeed other countries around the World.

We know the ex-forces community want to thank Lisa for her help and support.
