We are Community Veterans Support (SC045047) we run our daily drop in, the Coming Home Centre at the Pearce Institute in Govan, Glasgow.
We support Veterans with a range of services at the point of need. A Veteran is anyone who has served for more than one day in either the Regular or Reserved Armed Forces of the UK. All Veterans are welcome.
We provide a free daily hot meal and hot drinks Mon-Fri to Veterans in need. Our mission is to break the cycle of social isolation and offer supported signposting to the wider network of Veterans organisation in Glasgow.
HEALTH & WELL-BEING
Socially interacting with others over a hot meal can help to break the deadlock of social isolation, develop confidence and improve overall health and well-being.
The journey of a thousand miles, starts with a single step. If you are a Veterans and feel isolated please ‘drop-in’.
The CHC has it's very own bike shop run by qualified technicians.

The mainstay of support offered by the Coming Home Centre is simply, a continuity of place. Somewhere you can literally just ‘drop-in’ for a hot meal and a blather, it sounds simple but it works. We act as a hub to help you coordinate your support, empowering you as an individual to seek appropriate help. We will always do our best within the remit of our training.
From a good old fashioned brew to traditional steak pie & chips. We provide free food & refreshments to all our veterans at the drop in centre, oh! and sometimes you might even get a sweet :).
Want to know more why not 'drop in' where you can have a chat with old comrades and even take in some pool, darts or even dominoes after lunch. It's up to you.
