NESA (The National Ex Services Association) exists as a directory and campaign tool for ex service men and women, their family, friends and supporters and as a publicity tool for help organisations which exist for their benefit.
As well as being a complaining and supporting voice the NESA web site aims to act as a directory for the various military associations, clubs, charities and help organisations, helping to publicise their campaigns, goals, appeals and events.
Many veterans and their families find it difficult to navigate their way to or through the amount of information available on the inter-net.
NESA is developing into a central directing point for those seeking help or simply interested in causes which mean a lot to them.
NESA relies entirely on donations and from sales via the NESA store to fund this service.
All work for NESA is done voluntarily.
Before contacting us please read this to establish whether NESA can help you.
We can not offer help in the following areas:
Case work for non members with financial and/or social issues
Please use our HELP FOR EX SERVICES directory on the NESA home page or refer to the HELP directories.
Researching historical information or records about relatives or military units
Please refer to our SERVICE RECORDS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS directory, LINKS directory or the appropriate Unit association from our ASSOCIATIONS directory - all available from the NESA home page.
Make financial donations to organisations or individuals
We are currently in a phase of development whereby we are financially restricted to improving the NESA organisation for its members in accordance with our AIMS (see above). We are developing our proposal for a National Charity Program and initially, donations from NESA will be distributed via that program. Part of our AIMS are to provide direction, re-direction and directory service to appropriate organisations, charities and bodies.
Please refer to our HELP FOR EX SERVICES directory on the NESA home page.
Provide advertising space for Literary work or Commercial advertising.
We offer a very generous scheme for advertising literary work. All we ask is that you make a donation.
Please refer to the BOOKS section from the NESA home page. We no longer offer any other form of advertising
Reply to correspondence
We hope that you find what you need by visiting the NESA web site. We do apologise but due to work load we can no longer respond to emails or enquiries for further information about relatives or organisations.
If it is not to be found on the NESA site then we probably do not know. Please surf our site for your answer.
The origins of the National Ex Services Association can be traced to the 1980’s when it was formed by current chairman - former world war two soldier and POW - Arthur Lane.
Originally NESA existed as a campaigning and lobbying body with thousands of members and a newspaper circulation of 10,000. It led and supported campaigns concerned with the welfare of the UK’s Ex Service men and women.
Today the National Ex Services Association exists as a small voluntary organisation offering an internet publicising tool for those campaign groups, charity organisations, ex forces associations and clubs whom continue to work for the welfare of the UK’s ex forces personnel.
As well as offering news, publicising events and appeals for such organisations, our website contains a handy directory of organisations which you may find useful.
Many veterans and their families find it difficult to navigate their way to or through the amount of information available on the inter-net. We have attempted to and continue to collect, centralise and catalogue those organisations which you may find useful.
