Veterans Aid (VA) is a UK charity, which has been successfully turning around the lives of veterans in crisis since 1932.

Dedicated to providing immediate, practical and holistic support to veterans who are homeless, facing homelessness or in crisis, its aim is to emotionally, socially and financially empower veterans to sustain independent living and achieve their own maximum potential to live and develop in the community. It really is the frontline for veterans in crisis.

Veterans Aid

VA has a light footprint and operates from just two London locations – a HQ & Ops Centre in Victoria and a 66-room residential facility (New Belvedere House) in Stepney.

It has helped veterans of the UK’s Armed Forces from 67 countries, interacted with academics and politicians worldwide and is the only UK veteran organisation belonging to FEANTSA.

CEO of Veterans Aid Dr Hugh Milroy discusses support for a section of the AF community that may not be saluting  on June 24th.
