As a charity, we rely on personal and corporate donations to enable us to provide the services we do.

All money that is donated, contributes towards supporting our veterans, improving our facilities and providing activities that will help to rehabilitate our veterans.

There are many ways you can donate to Launchpad. You can make a single payment or donate by Standing Order if you would like to make regular payments. You can also support one of our campaigns below, donate via Amazon Smile or leave a legacy gift in your will.

We are very grateful for your continued support and generosity.

Help our veterans to move on and find employment

Your donation will make a big difference to the 120 veterans who will stay with us over the next year. All monies donated will contribute towards their accommodation, support and welfare.

Support this Campaign

Help our veterans combat loneliness

Your support can help reduce isolation and loneliness. By 'buddying up' with one or two of our residents, you can support them on their journey to civilian life?

Support this Campaign

Help keep our veterans warm in their flats

The cost of living crisis affects us all and with increasing energy costs, this is an additional expense veterans can't afford. Your donation will enable residents to access an emergency fund to ensure they keep warm.

Support this Campaign

If you shop online at Amazon UK, why not shop at Amazon Smile who have the same products, prices and features but when you order, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) from your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to AF&V Launchpad. How good is that!

Shop using Amazon Smile

You can also use this tool which will redirect you to automatically so whenever you shop at Amazon, you don’t need to keep typing it in.

Thank you from all Trustees, staff and residents.

Legacies - Leaving a gift in your will

We know your loved ones may come first but a gift in your will to Launchpad could mean you leave a lasting legacy of support for those who have served their country.

If you have not yet made a will, or would like to change one, it is important to speak to a solicitor to consult on wording to ensure your wishes are clear and no confusion and upset arises. We recommend you contact a solicitor or a member of the Law Society of England and Wales or the Law Society of Scotland.

What types of legacy gifts can you leave?

A legacy gift can take one of three forms, depending on what is right for you. It can be a percentage share of what is left of someone’s estate after all debts have been paid; a fixed sum of money; or a gift could be anything, ranging from a painting to a property or stocks and shares.

What to do next

If you are interested in leaving a gift to Launchpad in your will, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team. You can apply here to request more information, or to let us know if you have already included us in your will today. Thank you.
