New Service

The Transition Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) is a specialist military informed community service offering assessment and support for armed forces veterans experiencing a variety of challenges post-discharge. Our primary goal is to quickly and accurately assess what support you might need and then to liaise with the services who can give you that support.

Some of the issues we can support you with:

  • Mental health difficulties
  • Housing, Financial and Employment                                     
  • Onward referral to other services/charities
  • Referral into our Complex treatment service if appropriate
  • Provide information to families and carers

We offer short-term interventions, guidance, and support while you’re waiting for other services.

Eligibility and Referrals

For referral into TILS, veterans must:

  • Be a resident in England;
  • Have served in the UK Armed Forces (regular or reserve) for at least one day (regardless of when they left) and be able to provide their military service number or another form of acceptable proof of eligibility;
  • Be registered or able to register with a GP practice in England.
