Homes for Veterans is an initiative of Alabare Christian Care. We provide homes for veterans across the South West and Wales who are no longer in the forces and find themselves with nowhere to go. As Community Fundraiser for Gloucestershire all funds we raise here go directly to our home in Gloucester itself, which supports up to eight veterans, for up to a year to enable them to gain vital skills and guidance.
