Turn the lights on for homeless veterans


When they leave the military, a number of Veterans don’t know where to get the support they need. They are, effectively, in the dark about life outside the Armed Forces.

But your donation can help to turn on the lights.

Church Housing Trust and Riverside Care and Support say it’s time to turn lights on for Veterans. By donating to us and supporting the Lights On For Veterans campaign, you will fund Riverside’s specialist housing and training centres, which are tailored for those leaving the Armed Forces and facing homelessness.

While a safe and comfortable place to live is vital, your donations create the supportive environment that allows homeless people to rehabilitate. Veterans with complex needs receive one-to-one guidance and help with housing, health, counselling, training, or employment.

Your donation will provide the quality of care that ensures ex-Servicemen and women gain the confidence, skills and extra support necessary to start their lives again.

Help us support homeless Veterans through dark times, into a bright future. Donate today, and turn lights on for Veterans.

You can also donate by text! Text ‘VETN15 £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10’ to 70070 to make a difference today.
