Our Team

Our experienced staff work in partnership with a range of specialist providers to help residents with additional support to improve their wellbeing, to help them claim benefits, to tackle training and to help them to acquire jobs and subsequent accommodation.

 

Our aim is to help veterans secure employment and more permanent housing within two years so that they can live independently and contribute to society.
