Glasgow Helping Heroes Wins £25,000 grant from Nationwide
We are proud to announce that Nationwide Building Society has granted us £25,000 to help support our veterans and their families in Glasgow! A great gesture that is very much appreciated by everyone at SSAFA.
Rachel Tribble, Service Manager Glasgow’s Helping Heroes, said:
“We are delighted that the work we do with the Armed Forces community in Glasgow has been recognised by Nationwide. We’re extremely grateful for the incredibly generous grant which will help us reach more veterans and their families in need.
“Our plan is to launch a new ‘Tenancy Support Programme’ that supports veterans to successfully sustain new tenancies. It will offer support to manage their homes – by paying rent on time, budgeting, taking meter readings, and knowing who to call if something goes wrong.”
Garry Samson, Nationwide’s Regional Director, said:
“One in five people in Scotland have been homeless or have experienced family or close friends without a home of their own, so it’s imperative that we do something about this.
“Helping people into homes of their own is at the heart of what we do as a building society, which is why we’re making funding available for local housing projects. In fact, we’re making £22 million available over five years across the UK to do just this and ensure everyone has a place fit to call home.”
