Support Launchpad with your Will For Good
Launchpad has supported almost 500 veterans since 2013 and hope to continue to do so for many years to come. They provide safe, secure accommodation and other essential support to 80 veterans at any one time from two houses, to help them make a successful transition to civilian life. They run Speke House in Liverpool, which is home for up to 48 veterans while Avondale House in Newcastle upon Tyne accommodates 33 residents.
You can support the work they provide to veterans when you make your Will For Good. Launchpad needs to raise at least £340,000 per year in donations and grants to contribute towards the costs of running both houses. Gifts in wills are vital in helping them to support homeless and unemployed veterans to rebuild their lives, move on to live independently and secure employment.
There is no obligation to include a gift in your free will, but anything you leave will help ensure the work they do continues. Approximately 85% of the veterans who come to Launchpad are homeless. In a typical non-pandemic year, 69% of residents successfully move on to settled accommodation and 42% leave in paid employment.
