Funding of £500,000 has been announced for veterans' projects in Scotland to help ex-service personnel access support for physical and mental health, and also financial, employment and cost of living challenges.
Veterans Minister Graeme Dey announced the funding awards while visiting Community Veterans Support in Glasgow.
That organisation has been awarded £18,536 for its Warmer, Healthier, Safer Veterans project which is providing food, peer support and financial advice to veterans facing challenges as a result of the cost of living crisis.
Mr Dey said: "Scotland has a long and proud military tradition and we must ensure our veterans and their families continue to be supported during this cost of living crisis.
"I am grateful for the close-knit charity sector here in Scotland, and I'm continually impressed by the level and quality of support charities are providing. The excellent work of Community Veterans Support is a great example of what can be achieved."
He added: "Each of the 17 projects awarded funding from the Scottish Veterans Fund this year will make a real difference and will mean our veterans can get the help they need when they need it."
The grant awards for 2023-24 are from the Scottish Veterans Fund, which has now provided more than £2.8m to nearly 220 projects since 2008.
