Ayrshire Welfare Centre

The West of Scotland has enjoyed close links with the Armed Forces for many years. Around 37,000 veterans and their families live in the area. Thanks to generous funding from both The MacRobert Trust and LIBOR, Poppyscotland has opened this specialist support and advice centre in Kilmarnock to provide one-to-one local contact.

Drop in to our Welfare Centre on King Street for the opportunity to meet other veterans as well as the chance to take part in specially run courses and activities. Please pop in and see us, or pick up the phone, and find out how we can help.

Partnership working is at the heart of what we do. We are here to help you navigate through the available services to find a package of support that is tailored for your particular needs.

Within the Poppyscotland Ayrshire Welfare Centre itself you’ll be able to access the services of the Regular Forces Employment Association (RFEA), Veterans First Point (V1P) Ayrshire, Combat Stress and Unforgotten Forces.

For more information contact us on 01563 598000 or visit us at 44 King Street, Kilmarnock KA1 1NP.
