About us:

Erskine has been looking after our veterans for over 100 years, and is the leading care organisation for ex-service men and women in Scotland. Today Erskine remains committed to looking after Scotland's ex-service and serving men and women for as long as the need is there. An on-going development programme is in place to ensure that we meet the needs of this brave community in the future.

Erskine has been caring for Scotland’s veterans since 1916; re-building shattered lives, restoring dignity and providing first-class care to ex-service men and women. In the past year the charity has cared for 1,100 veterans. Erskine’s core role is to provide nursing care for elderly veterans in five specialist homes across Scotland, but the charity also offers support, housing and employment opportunities to veterans of all ages.

Erskine is a family. Our strength lies in the very special blend of dedicated care, compassion and understanding we offer to our residents and their families. As the UK's foremost provider of care for veterans, we provide unrivalled rehabilitation, nursing and Dementia care in our homes throughout Scotland.
