Homeless advice for armed forces veterans

Deciding on your priority need

When deciding on priority need, we may consider:

  • How long you were in the forces and what role you had
  • If you spent any time in a military hospital
  • If you were released from service on medical grounds (and have a medical history release form)
  • If you have had accommodation since leaving service and if you have been able to obtain or maintain accommodation since you left
  • How long it has been since you left service

To help support your case, you may need to provide medical evidence from the Ministry of Defence (MOD), including a medical history release form (if you were given one). It can be hard to establish that you are vulnerable.
