Here for veterans and their families

Supporting and advising former members of our UK Armed Forces, reservists and their family members.

Lothians Veterans Centre is a small independent charity which supports military veterans and their families.

We operate a drop-in centre in Dalkeith and have a small team of staff who are readily available to tackle any challenge that arrives through our door.

It is a safe and welcoming environment that can provide instant assistance, support and advice in relation to a wide range of services, including health and wellbeing; housing; employment; benefits; pensions; further education and training; access to health services; welfare; comradeship; and activities.

Veterans can also just drop in for a brew and a chat.

Sometimes there's biscuits!
