Our purpose is to provide practical support to improve the quality of life for bereaved military family members – parents, partners and children. We also contribute to the provision of good quality, affordable and sustainable accommodation through partnerships with housing associations for ex-service personnel, so they can build new and rewarding lives when their service careers finish.

We offer hands-on support including garden maintenance, painting and decorating and other DIY services based on requests made by bereaved families. To date we have completed nearly 600 projects in the UK. We have supplied 300+ remembrance benches and fire pits as well as hundreds of remembrance cards to families to ensure they do not feel forgotten, and personalised memory books. We have also commissioned 10 personal portraits of fallen soldiers.
In support of veterans we are currently working alongside Broughton House based in Manchester to provide funding to expand their Armed Forces Support Hub. This is a one-stop shop that provides tailored advice and support for health, housing, welfare, social and employment issues. We are also working with Haig Housing Trust on various projects. One example is funded scooter shelters for veteran homes in Moredon.

Give Us Time is a small, niche service charity that focuses exclusively on the military family. As a charity we provide free holiday accommodation to veterans and serving personnel and their families, as well as the families of those who have lost their lives due to military service. The holidays we provide – from a night in London, a weekend break in the country, or a week’s holiday in the sun – facilitate reconnection and readjustment to family life following long periods of separation due to operational deployment. As well as individual family holidays, we also run group holidays for those families who live, work and serve together. Give Us Time relies on donations of time from the owners of holiday groups, hotels, holiday homes and timeshares and puts them to good use. We believe that to have happy service personnel you need happy service families.

The Charity’s objects are: to support armed forces personnel, their families and veterans through such charitable means as the trustees think fit and in particular: (a) to support the morale of armed forces personnel by giving support to their family units; (b) to assist service families, especially, but not exclusively those who have suffered loss or injury; (c) to help both armed forces personnel and their families make the transition from military to civilian life; and to relieve serving and former members of the armed forces and their dependants who are in need by virtue of their physical or mental health or their economic circumstances.

Give Us Time aims to provide holidays for both serving and veteran military personnel and their families from across the British Armed Forces. As a charity we mainly provide free holiday accommodation and ask the service family to cover travel, insurance and other holiday expenses. However, we also organise group holidays which are usually fully sponsored by the property donor and/or regimental group sponsoring the Service families attending the trip.

Charity Number: 1144661
Company Number: 07295751

We offer emotional and practical support to families facing challenging and complex needs, often finding family life overwhelming. Underpinning our work is the nurture and protection of children and the improved resilience of the family.

Our weekly home-visiting service provides free and confidential outreach support to families in their own homes, delivered by trained and supervised volunteers who are carefully ‘matched’ with the families they help. Through our support, we equip families to develop life skills in order to realise their full potential and make the best of their opportunities.

Home-Start Hampshire has an established history of supporting families in the Armed Forces, meeting the discrete needs of both serving and veteran families ensuring the best possible outcomes for children and families. By supporting families early on, we give children the chance to grow up with prospects rather than problems.

We provide practical and emotional support for Armed Forces Families who are experiencing isolation and loneliness, those who are disadvantaged through lack of community integration or frequent changes in education settings, and those disadvantaged through poor physical, emotional and mental health.

The one-to-one support is tailored to the families’ needs and is often supplemented by an opportunity to attend group activities and parenting courses. Our primary aim is to keep families together, prevent crisis or possible family breakdown and prevent the need for welfare or statutory intervention.
