Alabaré are delighted with the Government’s decision and their confirmed backing of the Our Wilton Trust Veterans’ Development.  With today’s announced funding from the Armed Forces Covenant (LIBOR) Fund, Alabaré will be able to support vulnerable Veterans in Wilton, and those from the wider Wiltshire area, a county with such a proud military history.

Alabaré have been supporting vulnerable adults in the South West since 1991 and Veterans in particular for the last 6 years. To date we have helped over 300 ex-Armed Forces personnel who have struggled in their civilian lives, and are now the largest providers of temporary supported accommodation for Veterans of working age outside London.  This new development will see Alabaré working in partnership with Our Wilton Trust to provide support to 12 residents of the Wilton scheme at any one time.

Our model of personalised support has been developed through our years of experience and our working with over a dozen prominent Military Charities.  We develop individual support plans with each resident to help them overcome crises, address health and welfare concerns and find employment or training opportunities.  Our aim is to ensure that they move on from our support with the skills and confidence to have a successful, fulfilling, independent life.

Andrew Lord, Alabaré CEO said; “Today’s announcement brings us a huge leap forward in achieving our aim of supporting more Armed Forces Veterans who for a range of reasons have fallen on hard times.  Wilton is a town of huge significance within the Military community, and it is only fitting that now there will be a unique facility supporting Veterans on the site where HQ Land Forces at Erskine Barracks once stood.  With our partners Our Wilton Trust and Our Enterprise, we will now be able to help a significant number of Veterans in Wilton who could otherwise have been homeless or living in unstable accommodation.”

 

Matthew Bell, CEO and founder of Our Enterprise, one of the organisations behind Our Wilton Trust, said; “I am absolutely delighted that we are working with Alabaré on this unique project.  This scheme will enable us to create a vibrant community that includes high quality Veterans accommodation and a substantial enterprise hub, which together will facilitate a pathway out of homelessness and into a fulfilling life.”

Alabaré already run Homes for Veterans in Salisbury, Hampshire, Weymouth, Plymouth, Gloucestershire, Bristol and South Wales.  Veterans seek help from us for a number of reasons, including homelessness caused by unemployment, relationship breakdown, debt, ill health and addiction.
