Sponsorship & Partnerships
Veterans HQ is always seeking to collaborate with businesses to help support our general work; specific projects or to help develop new and innovative approaches to new service offerings. In return, we can offer businesses great new opportunities for delivering on their CSR & Social Value obligations and getting their employees into giving back to their local communities through our Employee Volunteering programmes.
If you or your company would like to know more about how to support our work, then give HQ a call and we can arrange an informal meeting to discuss ways that you and your business can support us.
Veterans HQ currently receives funding from The MOD via the Covenant Grant Fund and from The BIG Lottery. This enables project and programme work to be delivered to the most vulnerable individuals and families. Most notably, our New Beginnings programme offers veterans and their families support through our Veterans in Custody and Families Officers posts and was funded by The Big Lottery.
Centre of Excellence
A new initiative for Veterans HQ is the creation of a Centre of Excellence for ex-armed forces personnel, reservists and their families across the Liverpool City Region. Whilst the early benefit of this exciting development will be to afford our team and veterans more space as an HQ, the longer-term benefits will see a wide range of service offerings coming together under the one roof, including:
- Emergency accommodation for homeless veterans;
- Supported housing for those veterans requiring additional care;
- Employability, education & training facilities;
- Health, fitness and wellbeing services;
- Counselling and interview facilities; and a
- Social facility.
Memorandum of Understanding
Our work is being supported by the Combined Authority and the new Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram via a Memorandum of Understanding and Veterans Strategy with the local authorities. Just one of the benefits of this collaborative approach will be the data collection and information protocols all local veterans support organisations will share. This way, no matter where in the City Region a Veteran presents, they will be able to register and engage by going through the exact same process and, if they have already shared their details with just one of the veterans’ support organisations across Merseyside, we will be able to identify them and more quickly respond to their specific needs and help them access the most appropriate support.
