Veteran Home in Plymouth

In partnership with the Royal British Legion, Alabare' Christian Care and Support have opened a half way house for Veterans in Plymouth. With Life Change UK and the Langley House Trust, over the next 2 years it is planned that the concept be further developed to provide rehabilitation centres for Veteran offenders as an alternative to custody and probation.

This all fits well with the PM's emphasis on the Military Covenant and the Ministry of Justice drive to reduce the prison population and engage with Third Sector organisations.

An introduction to Alabare's current work with veterans can be seen here -
