Despite falling numbers of homeless people on the streets of the UK, it is widely accepted that ex-Service personnel feature among those who are unfortunate enough to find themselves in this situation. SSAFA can provide advice and different types of assistance to those eligible for their service. They also provide temporary supported accommodation for separated women and children and their London Homeless Division works with ex-Service rough sleepers. They also have designed an excellent homeless guide. All of the above is on their website at the link below:
