Armed Services Advice Project: Taking The First Step
That this House congratulates the Armed Services Advice Project (ASAP) on two successful years of delivering advice, information and support to the armed forces community in Scotland; notes that ASAP is delivered by Citizens Advice Bureaux across Scotland, including across the Renfrewshire region, and that its success lies in helping veterans access support and advice; welcomes the publication of Civvy Street: The New Frontline, which highlights that ASAP has dealt with over 6,000 issues for more than 1,400 clients in its first 21 months, has had a client financial gain of 900,000, and that ASAP clients have been assisted with 4.1 issues per client compared to an average of 2.1 for a non-ASAP client; further notes that ASAP offers a holistic service that focuses on the individual rather than a specific issue, combining high quality advice with expert knowledge of particular armed forces and veterans' issues; further notes that getting the right help at the right time can make a significant contribution to helping veterans; and commends ASAP for providing a vital source of advice and support for veterans and their families across Scotland.
