Alabaré Christian Care
Help for Heroes grant funding of £78,539 supports Alabaré Armed Forces veterans as they make their tough transition to civilian life. Funding is used to provide accommodation, support and practical help in the Alabaré supported homes as veterans progress to independent living.
The Help for Heroes fund will be used to help up to 15 veterans over the next two years. When accepted into a home, a detailed plan is drawn up showing what the veteran hopes to achieve and it is this care which is funded by Help for Heroes. Most veterans live in homes with high to medium support although some need intensive care, moving to a low level support home when they are ready before progressing to independent accommodation.
Chief Executive of Alabaré Andrew Lord says: “It is a great honour to be working with Help for Heroes which has done so very much to highlight the on going needs of veterans. Alabaré is passionate that those who have served their country are given the right support if they find themselves facing adversity and homelessness in civilian life.”
Mr Lord adds: “Timely and appropriate help prevents a further decline in circumstances that can lead to homelessness, deteriorating mental and physical health, unemployment, poverty, addiction problems and the breakdown of relationships.”
