Provide a safe & welcoming London Café Hub
Support veteran activities
Through our growing network of Café Hubs, we support veterans and their families where it matters most – in their homes and their communities. Support us in making a difference. Join us, help us, talk about us, guide us, ask us. But most of all care.
We are a dynamic, effective charity working across the UK. We provide on the ground support for veterans of the Emergency Services and Armed Forces. Are you a veteran struggling with civilian life? Please contact us on 0207 730 7545 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“First light is hopeful, beautiful, but it is also when you are at your most vulnerable. You are on sensory overload. You are on radio silent. You feel isolated in your shell scrape peering into the distance. Very fitting indeed.”- Army veteran
Poor mental wellbeing can make it difficult to cope with daily life. Many veterans experience mental wellbeing problems after they leave the services and move into civilian life. FirstLight Trust provides the right support in the right place at the right times.Read More
The cause of homelessness is often “invisible” with many veterans becoming homeless due to debt, relationship breakdowns, unemployment, ill-health or lack of affordable housing. The preventative work we do around these issues is effective and long-term.Read More
Many veterans feel socially isolated, alone and misunderstood. Something that has become worse in the last 18 months. FirstLight Trust Café Hubs provide a safe space in which to make friends with those in their communities. The Café Hubs enable new and lifelong friendships.Read More
