Homeless Veterans appeal: Safe in their own homes after ensuring we're safe in ours

Homeless Veterans appeal: Safe in their own homes after ensuring we're safe in ours | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Home is an important word for our soldiers, sailors, airmen and women. They regularly put their lives at risk in order to make us feel safe in our own homes, while fighting to provide overseas communities with that same security. Any soldier deployed overseas will think fondly of home. It is only right and fair that they are able to settle back into a home life once they leave their service. That's why I support this initiative.
britishroses's insight:

#ToriesMustGo #EdForPM
A home is important to everyone! Disabled people have been evicted unable to pay their rent because of social security delays and or the bedroom tax; they also need the security of a safe home and social security paid into their accounts on time.
