Adjusting to life after the Armed Forces

This is a resource to support service leavers, veterans and their families going through the adjustment process of living outside of the Armed Forces.

The resource specifically addresses the issues that are commonly experienced in the lead up to, and after leaving the Armed Forces. These include issues such as acquiring accommodation, employment, finances, health as well as personal, family and social adjustment. This is in recognition that the transition and resettlement phase does not end when people actually leave the armed forces. For some it continues for weeks, months and even years after they have left. It also raises awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant and the support that exists for veterans and their families.
