About this cause

About our cause

The Guidon Charity is supportive, educational and diversionary. The charity seeks to support homeless former service personnel who may or may not have a drug or alcohol addiction. This will reduce levels of drug dependency, thus reducing the need to commit crimes to fund the habit. Reducing homelessness and worklessness would also be a part of the charity, with an aim of reducing the risk of returning to illicit drugs and crime. This would take the form of peer support and skills and educational improvements. This will be achieved through on site educational and counselling programs. Once significant individual milestones have been achieved, off site work placements will be sought. These placements will be with former service personnel who have established successful businesses in civilian life, each placement will be funded for an agreed period, after this period the employer will be given the opportunity to make the placement full time. Finally housing and employment will be found in the location of choice and peer support will be put in place to support the individual in the community.
