Once, We Were Soldiers

Registered as a charity in England & Wales – Charity Number 1158318

Did you know that at least 10% of the UK homeless population is made up of ex-forces personnel?  

Our purpose is to raise awareness of this and offer support.

We are based in Leicestershire and currently operate throughout The Midlands.

Our main priorities are homeless veterans, those that have fallen upon hard times and those that find it difficult to adjust to civilian life.

The number of military personnel now suffering with PTSD or other mental health conditions are rising rapidly.  Many veterans find themselves homeless, with no hope, no support and through no fault of their own.  They turn to alcohol or drugs or both to help them through each day, to block out the horrors they have persistent flashbacks of.

These men and women put their lives on the line for our country, don’t they deserve better?
