To obtain and set up a safe retreat campsite for Veterans, and a safe campsite for homeless veterans who can't handle being housed.
There are over 9000 homeless veterans veterans in the UK.
Thousands of Veterans in the UK with PTSD
We at 1968 foundation find and house homeless veterans and help them get back on their feet.
We have been given the opportunity to obtain some woodland to set up a campsite for veterans who can't handle normal living in 4 walls, and to set up a retreat for veterans who need to get away from the stress of life and go back to basics for a few days.
Unfortunatly to set up a campsite legaly is not cheap and we are a non funded, not for profit charitable organization.
We need to raise funds to secure the lease on the land for 12 months, get basic facilities to the site in the form of toilets, showers water supply fire safety equipment, some basic camping kit like ten s and sleeping bags in case anyone needs them.
