We asking you to pledge your support and to update you on some very positive developments on our quest to eliminate Veterans’ homelessness following our reception at the House of Lords in March.

The University of York research that we launched at the reception highlights how some ex-Service personnel slip through the net and end up homeless after leaving the Armed Forces. Evidence suggests that well over a thousand ex-service personnel each year require urgent support to find accommodation.

As this year marks the centenary of the First World War battles of Arras, Messines Ridge, Passchendaele and Cambria, sometimes known as the Third Battle of Ypres, Alan felt it very important to do something to mark our respect for all those who took part in this battle, and by doing so, also assist those from recent conflicts who need our help and support today.
