Ex-service personnel, residing in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Eire, The Channel Islands or the Isle of Man who suffer from disabilities accepted by the Veterans Agency as due to, or aggravated by service and classed as War Disablement Pensioners.

Types of Help
The general principles in considering applications for help, from pensioners are that the need is connected I some way with the pensionable disablement, the effect of old age, or poor quality life, and that all available help from state or local authorities, has been sought, even if not obtained. As far as applications from widows ex-nurses and VAD's the general principle is to alleviate deteriorating quality of life caused by bereavement, or old age. In all cases need must be shown.
