Hi I'm the Divisional Secretary at SSAFA Poole and the gentleman in the Bus station is being helped for the last four years by SSAFA. He is there by choice! He has a flat in Bournemouth but is not able to be there because of police issues. I can tell ... [ more ]
If they are Veterans please contact me and we will go and see them unfortunately the gentleman in the Bus station is well known to all agencies and police.
Oh forgot to say he is a Veteran but has many problems that we are all trying to sort out!!
He has been helped money given for 3 flats but he is evicted because of his behaviour he has a personality disorder not PTSD! Nothing is due to his time in the services he chooses to be where he is. I have had many conversations with him
I cannot tell you more as there are police investigations going on. He will run SSAFA down and the Mental health team and probably the police
That's the problem especially if you add a memory problem
Don't forget Wild Poet if they are Veterans please let me know as SSAFA for Poole and Bournemouth all work out of the Parkstone office and we work with the Veterans Mental health team in Dorset NHS Trust. We can help with Funding and grants for them. ... [ more ]
Oh OK I used to know a few at Faithworks I'll get in touch with them. The more we can work together the better x
There are many Veterans on the streets of Poole and Bournemouth
If anyone talks to a Veteran in Poole by the bus station and he says he's not being helped by SSAFA can I assure you he is!
There is one that you often see at the industrial site next to Lidl Hatch Pond Lane. It must scavenge off the council vehicle's when they are parked.
Oh ok might be worth a try. we want to make the office a drop in centre so that would be nice to have a proper machine. thanks I'll try them
I have one now thank you
If you receive benefits try Dorset Reclaim on the Nuffield they will deliver as well
Depending on funds what about hiring one of the yachts/boats Poole Harbour and a trip round the bay.
