Help make our voice collectively stronger as we continue to tackle Veterans’ homelessness
New research from the University of York, funded by the Forces in Mind Trust and commissioned by Riverside and Stoll, has identified the obstacles Veterans face when seeking accommodation post service.
Riverside and Stoll, in collaboration with the Cobseo Housing Cluster, are now calling for the Government, Local Authorities and other agencies to adopt the recommendations below as part of a drive to reduce Veterans’ homelessness to zero – and we want you to sign up to pledge your support.
The recommendations fall under three key areas:
- We must improve the transition process to try and prevent any Serving personnel becoming homeless after Service.
- All Local Authorities and other agencies in the ‘civilian’ sphere must establish if a person seeking housing support is a Veteran and then have a clear plan to respond to the Veterans they identify.
- Supported housing for Veterans should be put on a sustainable financial footing once and for all.
We invite you to endorse this Call to Action and be part of a national drive to help eradicate unnecessary homelessness among Veterans by completing the form on the top right of this page.
You can find out more about the Call to Action and read in detail about the research in the documents below.
