Support For Vulnerable Veterans In Hampshire

We are delighted to be the recipient of a recent grant from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation (HIWCF), which will help us provide support to homeless and vulnerable ex-Armed Forces personnel at our Hampshire Home for Veterans.

The grant has been made from the Solent Community Grants Programme, which was created by Solent Local Enterprise Partnership and is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF), HIWCF donors, Hampshire County Council, Portsmouth City Council and Southampton City Council.

Our Hampshire Homes for Veterans provide support for ex-Armed Forces personnel who have struggled in their transition to civilian life.  Our team provide individualised support to each Veteran to help them address their needs, gain practical skills to manage budgeting or dealing with debt, and support to address mental or physical health problems.  We work closely with other agencies and health providers in the area to ensure that our Veterans can access the complete support that they need.

During their stay with us, we will help our Veterans to move into employment, training and volunteering opportunities, and our team will support them to access those that are most suited to them and their circumstance.  We can help with CV writing and job searching as well.

Veterans in the Hampshire area who are in need of our support can find out more information at www.alabare.co.uk or by calling 02392 175230.
