Support for ex-Forces – funding boost for North East

Durham based charity Finchale, which supports veterans and their families from the North East has received a grant of more than £100,000 to continue its valuable work in the community.

The grant comes from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the British Army’s national charity, and will provide support to 70 Ex-forces personnel from across the region.

In addition to helping with the cost of staffing, the grant will go towards providing individualised, professional case management that will enable veterans from the North East to access support in areas such as personal finance, housing, relationships, mental and physical health, training and education, whilst learning the necessary skills to get back into employment.
