Tommy's Lounge

Tommy’s Lounge CIC is first and foremost a Veteran owned coffee lounge with a military theme, we specialise in providing a safe space where service personnel can be themselves, in a safe space and surrounded by other veterans who ‘get it’. We provide peer to peer support, signposting and generally a place where people can relax.  The lounge is set up with mental health in mind, most seating is backed against a wall with clear view exits and lots of memorabilia adorn the walls to create talking points.  So pull up a sandbag and come enjoy a brew in Huddersfield.

Forces Children’s Trust

Established in January 2004, Forces Children’s Trust is the first British charity to specifically support children whose parent has died or sustained life-changing injuries whilst serving as a member of the British Armed Forces.

The FCT offers physical activity support to young people who have experienced bereavement. From participating in expeditions abroad, residential weeks away, the children gain valuable life-skills to help them cope and adjust to life without a parent. There are many other aspects that the charity can help with, for example, organising bereavement counselling, help with extra-curricular lessons plus many other situations. The children along with their parent feel part of a family unit within the FCT and they support one another.

Help 4 Homeless Veterans

As a charity, we have helped many homeless former service personnel by providing a wraparound Service of Care (SOC).
