Meeting the Needs of Homeless Veterans


This report considers the support that veterans and their families need, (including in relation to housing, health, economic, and employment) and the wider issue of social integration.


This report has been written by SPEAR staff involved in service delivery, with the support of Leapfrog consultancy. It draws on interviews with clients, partner agencies, as well as the staff delivering the service and references research and best practice in the wider sector. This report is written in the spirit of the ‘The Veterans’ Transition Review’ (Lord Ashcroft: 11/02/2014) to promote: ‘collaboration within the charity sector, ending the confusing array of charity information Service Leavers currently encounter, and ensure those who need help can find it straight away without having to make several calls or being passed from one organisation to another’.
