A NEW home for veterans in need of help has opened in Fareham.

The four-bedroom home in Beech Road is run by the charity Alabare.

Cllr Andrew Joy, chairman of Hampshire County Council, declared the home open.

He said: ‘The real and long-term damage suffered by veterans so often does not emerge until long they have left HM Forces, at a time when their needs are greatest and support is hard to find.

‘Alabare’s help in providing a home and supportive environment to enable veterans to adjust will make an enormous difference to their lives.’
