Veterans Aid Charity

What is Veterans Aid Charity?

In general terms all the charity’s activities revolve around helping ex-servicemen and women in crisis. Specifically it deals with all the factors that contribute to crisis –significantly those leading to homelessness. Because homelessness is both a cause and effect VA’s activities are diverse. The endgame is always to enable sustainable, independent living, but the interventions necessary to achieve this can involve days, weeks, months – or even years of investment.
First actions might be provision of food, new clothing and shelter; subsequent interventions might involve prolonged periods of counselling, drink/drug rehabilitation and medical treatment. Further support frequently involves education, retraining or the acquisition of a new skill. Help is given to identify employment opportunities and, when they are deemed ready, individuals are helped to move into new homes – furnished and decorated by Veterans Aid.
