SVR Managers Address Parliamentary Working Group23 Apr 2014
Two senior staff from Scottish Veterans Residences will address the Cross Party Working Group on Armed Forces Veterans at the Scottish Parliament this evening. Alison McQuillan and Ken Morrice, Support Managers at our supported accommodation facilities for veterans Rosendael in Dundee and Whitefoord House in Edinburgh have been invited to contribute as the Working Group is examining the topic of mental health in the veterans’ community.
Alison and Ken will outline how SVR supports residents who may have mental health issues and how collaboration with other organisations such as Combat Stress, Veterans First Point and Crisis Skylight helps to provide a joined up service for veterans.
The Cross Party Working Group, convened by Alex Fergusson MSP was established to help the Scottish Parliament to address the challenges facing Veterans and provide MSPs with a source of information and expertise on issues relating to Scottish Veterans.
