Our Aim is to take Veterans of HM Forces who are suffering with PTSD & Isolation and bring them together with like minded people.

The money raised will be used to purchase products that are required to make our Project Work. These products will be used by the Veterans to help them gain hands on experience as well as future qualifications and employment by gaining work experience with several local companies that has already been put in place.

This will help so many Veterans who maybe suffer with Mental Health Issues as well as Loneliness and Isolation. The end goal is to bring these Veterans to us where they are surrounded by like minded individuals as well as gaining employment to give them a sense of pride as well as financial security away from The Benefits System.

Helping Homeless Veterans UK was formed in September 2019 by three Directors who wanted to make a difference in The Veterans Community and utilising the skills they had developed over many years and with the help of some exceptional volunteers, we have gone from strength to strength since our formation. 

To date and since our conception we have helped and assisted 154 Veterans in less than two years and this has solely been carried out by volunteers with nobody taking any form of wages.

Our CEO has been involved in helping over 450 Veterans into a place they can call home and as a team we realise that more can be done to help Veterans who maybe lonely and feeling isolated. Mental Health and being isolated are two areas that we have recognised needs to be addressed and this is what our project aims to achieve.

By bringing Veterans to ourselves at our HQ at Rivo's Hub we can help address any issues that the Veterans may need help with and guide them using our own knowledge and skills as well as the many organisations that we work closely with. 

Our work has been recognised by The Veterans Community as well as senior front bench MPs and other dignitaries and we now feel we are in a position to help prevent Isolation and reintegrate as many Veterans back into society as well as gaining recognised qualifications and employment. We believe that Prevention is the best cure and we are certain that we now have the right project to achieve this.
