Salford Council works closely with local armed forces charities and other organisations to ensure Veterans in the community are supported. Detailed information on a variety of areas, and links to further resources are easily accessible on the council website.
Members of the armed forces community also have a new Salford City Council champion to help them with any housing issues. Rebecca Holden is working directly with veterans, ex-armed forces personnel, separated spouses, and widows or widowers who are struggling with their tenancies, homeless or threatened with homelessness. Rebecca can provide tailored support on a range of housing issues and has the knowledge of both the national and local voluntary sector to be able to signpost clients to the most appropriate place for additional support, if required.
Rebecca has already helped ex-armed forces personnel resolve issues with their landlords, deal with rent arrears, set up new homes, obtain furniture and signpost them to specialist debt advice.
