New Gosport Home for Vulnerable Seafaring Veterans

Greenwich Hospital and Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans are launching an exciting new partnership in the historic Naval town of Gosport, Hampshire, providing accommodation for homeless Seafaring Veterans. The new project, Greenwich House will become residence for up to 8 homeless and vulnerable Veterans at any one time, allowing those in need to gain the support that they so urgently need.

With the first residents due to move in in June, work is already underway to get the home ready. As well as a beautiful new home, each Veteran will be provided with support to help them access healthcare, gain budgeting skills, find training and employment opportunities, and prepare to manage their own accommodation independently again in the future.
