Help stop the light going out.
Putting emergency service 
and armed forces veterans
at the heart of all we do.

Serving those who served

Through our growing network of café hubs, we support veterans and their families where it matters most – in their communities and their homes. Support us in making a difference. Join us, help us, talk about us, guide us, ask us. But most of all care.

We are FirstLight Trust

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 enquiries@firstlighttrust.co.uk.

Why FirstLight?

“First light is hopeful, beautiful, but it is also when are 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
