NOTE FROM SEPTEMBER 2019 OUR CHARITY IS UNDERGOING MAJOR CHANGES TO THE WAY IT DELIVERS ITS HELP.
IN FUTURE OUR WORK WILL BE CONCENTRATED HERE IN YORKSHIRE. VETERANS ELSEWHERE IN THE COUNTRY WILL NEED TO ASK THE VETERANS GATEWAY FOR NAMES OF OTHER CHARITIES NEARER TO THE PLACE THEY ARE STAYING FOR ASSISTANCE.
Our charity’s work received Royal recognition on 24th April 2018 when Prince Andrew presented us with the DUKE OF YORK COMMUNITY INITIATIVE AWARD
We support former members of HM FORCES (VETERANS) facing homelessness. We are based in South Yorkshire and have working agreements through Barnsley Council (Berneslai Homes) and Doncaster Council (St Leger Homes) to rent some of their housing stock and then sub let to our veterans at cost ie we make no profit on the rents and often stand the cost whilst benefits are sorted or the veteran can afford their own rent again.
CREATED IN YORKSHIRE BY YORKSHIRE VETERANS TO HELP VETERANS HERE IN YORKSHIRE A MAJOR MILITARY RECRUITING AREA WITH A POPULATION SIMILAR TO THAT OF SCOTLAND.
The charity is a member of Cobseo, a signatory to the Corporate Covenant and a member of the Community Covenant Veterans Support Groups in Barnsley and Doncaster. Our annual reports and accounts are available to view on the Charity Commission and Companies House Web sites.
Our unique selling point is that we are small enough to react quickly; if we can help someone who contacts us it happens fast, if we are unable to help directly we will always refer enquirers to another organisation usually through the VETERANS GATEWAY who may be able to provide assistance.
We raise funds ourselves to allow us to offer assistance to veterans in need. we don’t work with any professional fundraisers
Since the charity was created it has helped almost 500 veterans with their housing problems. We can only continue this essential work because of grants from supporters and donations from the general public.
