Supporting our Veterans

Launchpad provides safe, secure accommodation and other essential support to homeless veterans in the UK to help them make a successful transition to civilian life.

The charity has two houses, Avondale House in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, which comprises 33 self-contained one-bedroom flats and Speke House in Liverpool accommodating 48 residents in self-contained flats.

Since 2013, the charity has supported 490 veterans (at Oct 2020).

90% of residents come to Launchpad from a homeless background. In a typical year, 67% of residents successfully move on to settled accommodation and 42% leave in paid employment.

This year, those numbers have fallen due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as employment opportunities are harder to find and recovery rates have slowed due to difficulties in getting veterans the support they need.
