Help for UK Homeless Veterans

A campaign has been launched to find homeless veterans and help them get the support they need.

The No Homeless Veterans initiative is being funded by the Forces in Mind Trust and will call on local councils, homeless
charities and agencies such as Citizens Advice to “think veteran” and direct them towards extra help.

The move comes after figures from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government revealed that just 1,780 of these individuals were identified last year by authorities – with more than 3,500 slipping through the net.
