Launchpad is proud to be a Giving Tuesday UK partner.

Today, 29 November 2022, is Giving Tuesday. If you’d like to support a good cause, then please consider supporting Launchpad and our veterans.

We provide vital accommodation and support for up to 100 veterans in the North of England via three houses in Newcastle, Durham and Liverpool. We help homeless and unemployed veterans of the UK armed forces, who usually suffer from complex issues, to rebuild their lives.

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the last decade, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

As a charity, we rely on personal and corporate donations to ensure we can continue to provide the support our veterans need. We’d really appreciate your help by supporting our Christmas campaign, Lighting up Launchpad, which gives you the opportunity to light up a flat in one of our virtual houses.

Since 2013, we have supported over 575 residents across all three houses. 90% of the veterans who arrive at Launchpad are homeless, and on average over the last five years, 61% successfully moved on to settled accommodation, either living independently, reunited with family or with the support they need and 41% of residents gained employment during their time living at Launchpad.
