New stretch target

We will be able to help more veterans who are in Crisis to get help when and where needed

National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund

We’re taking part in the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund. Donations to our project will be matched by the fund up to the value of £250 per donation to help us overcome the effects of the pandemic.

Please note only one donation per supporter will be matched by the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund.

  • Since Help A Squaddie was formed back in 2015 we have known what the main issues are in the veteran community in our area. There is no supported emergency housing.

We have found that 95% of our homeless cases are due to relationship breakdown. 

We have had numerous cases where the only place we could house veterans in a crisis situation is hotels. 

Now imagine you are a Veteran who has just lost everything, your family due to relationship breakdown, your Job, your identity, Would you want to be in a room of a hotel?

We have now achieved our goal of purchasing a 4 bedroom property in Rugeley and now we are asking for your support to help us run it effectively.

Over £200 million has been raised from our crowd to support the projects they love! Plus tens of millions more unlocked by our partners.
