Soldiers Off The Street – Scotland
Around 10-12% of rough sleepers in the United Kingdom are veterans of the British Armed Forces. Many veterans sleeping rough have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) & associated conditions such as alcohol &/or drug addictions as a result.
As well as helping veterans who have been sleeping rough, we also help those who are “sofa surfing” & veterans who are in accommodation but find themselves facing homelessness through no fault of their own.
Our aim is to get as many homeless veterans off the streets & back into normal, civilian life as possible. We are a small team of a regular, core volunteers. None of us receives a wage of any kind & we all fit our work with Soldiers Off The Street – Scotland around our own jobs & family life.
While we rely on our small, core group of volunteers, we receive no governmental funding & we cannot continue our work with homeless veterans without the kindness & generosity of the general public.
