Work is well underway at Wilton Hill Veterans’ Village, the ground-breaking development for Armed Forces Veterans being built on the former Land Command HQ in Wilton near Salisbury.

Thanks to funding allocated from the Chancellor from the Armed Forces LIBOR Fund, the 44 unit Veterans campus will be the UKs first purpose built community for vulnerable Veterans, helping them get back on their feet after suffering difficulties in their civilian lives.  The building phase is due to complete in 2018.

Alabaré is proud to be working in partnership with developers Our Wilton Trust on the scheme which broke ground in early 2017.  Once complete, the initiative will support over 300 veterans in ten years, each of whom will be recovering from challenges such as mental ill-health, debt issues, substance addiction and relationship breakdown. The personalised support available to them at Wilton Hill will include access to employment opportunities on an adjoining enterprise unit as well as a planned company sponsorship programme and an apprenticeship scheme.

MP John Glen has supported the development since its inception.  He says;

"It is particularly appropriate that this scheme, which gives a fresh start to the veterans who represent the best of British values, is being funded by fines levied on those bankers who demonstrated the worst."

"Local people have always been at the heart of the Wilton Hill development, and the community has sought to retain the military ethos at the heart of the former Army HQ." 

"I am delighted that the Chancellor has recognised the potential in Wilton to pioneer a model of care that offers the very best to those who have served their country so selflessly."
