HELP 4 HOMELESS VETERANS charity no 1148155 hosted a visit by local MP and Shadow Minister for Veterans Stephanie Peacock MP this lunch time at our new Barnsley Veterans Drop in Hub.
She spoke to Founder Tom Wood MBE and volunteers Andy and Diane Martin and myself about our work, how we support veterans, the Veterans Strategy Action Plan points relating to homelessness. We discussed cross referals to food banks.
We also suggested engaging with other local MPs like John Healey MP Shadow Defence Secretary and Dan Jarvis MBE MP, the new South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard to raise awareness of our new Drop In facility to aid ALL Veterans in the area.
Finally Stephanie expressed an interest in visiting our Therapy Farm Project so I warned her to bring her wellies!
Thankyou for taking the time to visit our charity today. #veterans #homelessness
