We provide accommodation and support to help homeless and vulnerable people.


In December 2021 the Atlantic Nomads Tom, James and Taylor, will be rowing across the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing more than 3,000 miles from La Gomera in Spain to English Harbour in Antigua. 

The team will battle sleep deprivation, 40 ft waves, salt sores, and all the ocean can throw at them as they row continuously for two hours on, two hours off for around 40 days until they reach Antigua, all in support of a fantastic charity: Alabaré – Homes for Veterans.

Alabaré Homes for Veterans

Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans provides supported accommodation to British Armed Forces Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The Charity believes that no veteran should be forced to sleep rough. To do this the wonderful team in H4V, fundraise for, run and continue to support a number of veterans’ ‘houses’ across the United Kingdom, specifically: Wiltshire, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Devon, Dorset as well as North and South Wales.

Many people are aware that veterans are common amongst the nation’s homeless community and on any given night, 365 days a year, the charity delivers shelter and safety to over 100 veterans. The homes are not just for shelter, they are also a hub for the veterans to reach out from and with excellent links to many local businesses and governments, the teams help veterans get back on their feet.
