This new centre will help homeless veterans rebuild their lives on Tyneside. The £700,000 unit has been created by housing charity Norcare in conjunction with Team Build, Mackellar Architects and Todd Milburn Cost Consultants from a derelict property in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
It offers accommodation for five people, as well as a day centre where up to 35 visitors can get employment and financial help. The centre will serve as a trial for several similar projects planned by Norcare across the UK. The project is supported by the Royal British Legion, it focuses on ex-services personnel who have fallen on hard times after returning to civilian life following active service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
