Veterans Aid

2 min read Partner content

Veterans Aid has been selected as the Master’s Charity for 2022/23 by the Merchant Taylors’ Company.

CEO of VA Dr Hugh Milroy said, “We are delighted to have been honoured in this way and are mindful of the advantages that accompany being the Company’s chosen charity. Over the course of the year I am looking forward to welcoming Company members to our HQ/Operations Centre and residential facility, New Belvedere House, to learn even more about our work with veterans in crisis.”

Master Harry Parshall of Merchant Taylors’ Company said, “The work of Veterans Aid is extremely important and provides immediate practical support to all former UK servicemen and women who are homeless, facing homelessness, or in crisis. I am delighted we’ll be able to help such a worthy cause and work with them in my Mastership year.”

Merchant Taylors is one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the City of London – a flourishing community dedicated to fellowship, education and philanthropy. Like Veterans Aid it is committed to transforming lives, largely through education, housing and grant making.

Philanthropy has been at the heart of Merchant Taylors’ since it was founded as a fraternity in the early 1300s. Today, it works across four London boroughs: Hackney, Southwark, Lewisham  – and Tower Hamlets, where  VA’s flagship residential facility New Belvedere House is located.
