The Veterans Charity
Who we are
The Veterans Charity was founded in 2008 and focuses on providing fast, direct support to Veterans of all generations who may be facing hardship and crisis. It is a tragic reality that many Veterans can find life very challenging after leaving the Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force and can experience many difficulties after the transition to civilian life.
There are many factors that can influence such difficulties including physical and/or mental injury and obtaining essential items that we all take for granted can take a great deal of time, often resulting in decreasing mental and physical health. We provide items like food shopping, clothing, utilities support, mobile phone and call credit, basic furniture and household items - all of which can have a lasting and very positive effect on the well-being of our beneficiaries.
“I received my food shopping last night. It’s everything I wanted and more. Thank you very much. You are a blessing to Veterans in Need. May god bless you and your team at The Veterans Charity.”
Known as the Rapid Reaction Force, we focus on providing essential items in the shortest possible time, ensuring that Veterans get the support they need when they need it most. Our average turn-around time is less than 48 hours and in many urgent cases, we're able to get vital items like food delivered the next day and in some cases, the same day!
“without the initial support from The Veterans Charity, nothing that has happened since would have happened. My life has totally changed and is finally heading in the right direction. My mental health is a lot better and I am actually looking forwards to the future – it’s thanks to VC! Thank you so much!”
We receive referrals from government departments, welfare providers, care homes, housing centres and many other charities and we also work hard to signpost Veterans to others in cases where we are unable to assist.
NO RED TAPE - JUST SUPPORT!
