The Coming Home Centre
Project Category: Registered charity
Based in Govan – Glasgow we provide tea, coffee and a daily hot meal free of charge to veterans. Eating a hot meal together is an activity that most veterans can identify with and relate back to their service experiences.
Friendly and welcoming
For the socially isolated, elderly, early service leavers and transitioning veterans food is the eternal icebreaker and can be a catalyst for opening up to further help and assistance.
The Centre offers in house support as well as other agency referral where required.
Where it all began
We set out to assist those leaving the services to make the transition from military to civilian life after their time in the forces. As word got out about our services on offer, we found that there was more veterans out there who came to us for assistance for a range of different needs.
We then realised that we would have to adapt our role in the community veterans support to cater for all veterans regardless of when and where they served.
How we help our veterans
The Charity works with veterans at the point of needing assistance with issues surrounding mental and physical health, homelessness, housing, pensions, benefits support, employment and training, woodwork and bike maintenance workshops, adventurous activities, vans for furniture uplift, removal or recycling, friendship and camaraderie.
