Are there enough places available to treat and support homeless former service personnel? Also, are those organisations who are trying to do something, doing the full job. I have done a little research and have so far found (and I might be wrong and I would be happy if some one were to correct me!!) that they all do bits, some re-house, some re-train, some de-tox the drug and alcohol users but no-one does it all. I am at present trying to set up a charity and a âsocial enterpriseâ where all the profits of the business goes straight back in to the company to provide more placements. I have got to say what a ball ache it all is. There is very little funding from the central government for this kind of supportive organisation and what funding there is, you have to jump through so many hoops to get it, it makes you want to give up. I have been at this for six months so far and the only funding I have got so far is to cover the cost of setting up the charity. We all need to do something, according to the official numbers there can be over 1000 (yes thatâs right ONE THOUSAND) homeless on any given night in London alone, never mind the rest of the country. These guys have served in the Falklands, either of the two gulf wars, Northern Ireland, Afghanistan or all of these. But the question is where do we get the cold hard cash to do it? My business plan calls for just short of Â£1.7million for a five year project that will help just 250 of the 1,100 homeless ex-service men and women. Any ideas will be gratefully received.
