Who we help

Poppyscotland supports current and former Servicemen and women from the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force, both regular and reserve, and members of the Merchant Navy who have served in a commercial vessel in support of UK military operations.  Importantly, we also support their families too.  Collectively we recognise them as the Armed Forces community and it is made up of around 530,000 people in Scotland.

We believe that those who serve in the Armed Forces, and their families, deserve special recognition and support.  The Armed Forces community is different from the civilian population because of the sacrifices they make, what they are asked to do, the lifestyle they live and the long term impact their service can have.  Poppyscotland exists to recognise their sacrifices, understand the challenges they face and provide a wide range of practical support to enable them to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.
