New experiences, new friends

Civvy street can feel isolating. We help you get out there and build new friendships.

What we get up to:

– cooking
– cycling

Have a lifelong dream? We have helped one veteran discover his passion for cooking, and provided another with the skills and confidence to find employment as a football club steward. What is your dream?

What do you need right now?

Whether it’s a roof over your head, to ‘get off the sofa’, food, general support or just a chat, we can help.

We’ll then work out a plan together for your future and support you to get there.

Finding you help

We’re by your side every step of the way. We keep in contact and keep checking in. But it’s a two-way street. We’re honest with you and expect you to be straight with us.

We work with organisations such as the Citizens Advice, DWP, job centres, local supermarkets, local housing associations, The Royal British Legion, SSAFA and probation  – we work with over 300 organisations to find what you need.

We operate across the UK, including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. If you are a UK veteran living overseas we will also help.

Both veterans and the public will find a warm welcome in our Café Hubs. We’re on high street locations in:






More Café Hubs and support are planned when we have secured enough funding.

Men talking

Know a veteran who has fallen on hard times?

We know that many veterans may be too proud to ask for help. But they’ve earned it and we’re here to supply it. We’ve lots of experience in talking to Military and Emergency Service personnel. Please let us know about your family member, friend or neighbour. If they need help, we aim to provide it.
