Military Matters

Are you currently serving in HM Forces or are you a veteran? We can help you to solve your housing problems.


An Introduction to our work

Military Matters (MM) is a specialist project within Housing Options Scotland focusing on housing issues affecting people serving in the military in Scotland, service personnel transitioning into civilian life and veterans.  MM provides housing information, advice and support to family members too. Inclusion of veterans’ families and existing service personnel is a key part of our work. Military Matters has helped over 600 people since it started in 2012.

Rear Admiral (Retd) Mike Gregory RN was Flag Officer Scotland and Northern Ireland and is a supporter of the Military Matters project.

“The Military Matters project combines Housing Options Scotland’s expertise in providing targeted advice to find the right home in the right place with the desire to see the armed forces community overcome some of the disadvantages service life can bring.  It is especially valuable to those facing the uncertainty of transition into civilian life and those with a disability whose housing needs may seem daunting or challenging.  The Military Matters team are there to offer support every step of the way.”.
