Our Charity is to help find homeless veterans, then rehabilitate, re-home, re-educate, and reintegrate them back into society.
We see the scope of this charity quickly growing from a small charity to becoming a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) and being registered with the Charity Commission. However, we want to start the charity immediately.
We expect the charity will grow through several phases:
Create a marketing and social media presence which can help us to continue funding the charity requirements, and grow a base of members that can help us grow the reach.
To investigate the scope of “the problem/s” with Homeless Veterans. Questions such as: How many homeless veterans are in the UK? Where are they? How can we fund the accommodation, education, rehabilitation? Can we leverage the MOD, local government or large predominant ex-military employers to help with these problems?
Find a “front face” or “lead person” that can be used to leverage the MOD and government to help both raise funds and assistance.
Convert the charity to a CIO, we feel that the £5,000 limit will be reached quickly, once this happens, we will upgrade the charity.
Work on behalf of all Veterans to change “the Problem/s” with the MOD, and each of the military branches from the original scoping issues, such as training, resettlement, education issues that could be resolved to reduce the homeless veterans situation.
The main phase and purpose of the charity is to Work to re-home, re-train, re-educate as many veterans as possible, this will include potential assistance with substance abuse. The timeframe of this “Re-habitation” is unknown, but will be researched in the scoping stage.
The vision of this, is a location where we can accommodate several veterans at once, where we can provide the training, rehabilitation , education. Once settled, we will work with local government to provide full time employment for each of the vets (even if the work is temporary in nature, and just to get the individual back to employment),
