The key objective of Home Group's Ex Services/Veterans Accommodation service is to help former services personnel / veterans rebuild their lives through the provision of short-term accommodation and person centred support, with a view to helping service users move on and resettle in the community with a home and job.
The service can accommodate single people and families and aims to improve Ex Services / Veterans personal, social, educational and home management skills.
They have 10 x 1 bedroom flats and 3 x 2 bedroom houses, all fully furnished, at Centenary Close, Maryport, Cumbria. There is a large communal hub with kitchen facilities and communal lounge.
The hub is designed as a warm and welcoming space for external agencies to deliver workshops and drop-ins as well as allowing Veterans space to socialise together.
