Forces Support - bereavement and veteran’s charity meet Her Majesty the Queen
For most of us, home is one of the cornerstones of our daily life: providing protection, safety, comfort and reassurance. At Forces Support we think every service veteran deserves a good quality home, suitable to their needs, at whatever stage of their life.
We also know that maintaining the home and property can be overwhelming for those left behind. This is why we offer support to bereaved families, to relieve this burden and to create quiet spaces at home to remember a loved one.
We achieve our goals by working with trusted partners: -
- expanding the supply of suitably equipped veteran housing;
- supporting counselling and practical advice services;
- offering practical home maintenance and garden improvement services to bereaved relatives;
- providing remembrance items and places for quiet reflection.
