Support for homeless veterans

Life after the Forces can be challenging, and many ex-service men and women can find themselves without a home – due to a whole range of different reasons. SSAFA is here to help veterans get back on their feet, and back into a home.

I was sleeping in the park for a bit but none of my family knew about that. I think it’s a pride thing. If your head’s not in the right place it’s hard to ask for help.

- Joe, Army Veteran

How can SSAFA help my homeless situation?

Our network of volunteers provide welfare services across the country.  We know that homelessness can happen because of financial difficulties, mental health challenges, relationship breakdowns, and addiction.  Every person is different, and we will find the right path out of homelessness for you.

We are not here to judge you or your situation, but to help you recover.
