THE VILLAGE

Our vision is to create a global community that reaches across barriers and boundaries, where people can live and thrive, and where human potential is championed.

WHY

Across the planet there is profound potential that is being lost every day, potential that if given the right circumstances could be harnessed to change the world.

HOW

We have discovered the beneficial impact of utilising the skills of the Veteran. They work well as a team and have extraordinary empathy for others. By repurposing their abilities learned in the Armed Services, we have harnessed a dedicated, versatile and resilient work-force who can make a significant impact on our beneficiaries and the infrastructure around them. 

WHAT

The Village works to integrate people who would otherwise be excluded from society. We do this through housing, education, skills training, mental health support and enterprise building. We operate with a firm commitment to holistic support of the individual and a focus on long term sustainability.

WHERE

Our Villages are not uniform. They are reacting to the unique needs of a place and culture and are at different stages of growth. Yet, each aspires to consist of shared elements.

SUSTAINABILITY 

Our ethos is to build our Villages so they are sustainable, not only financially but also ecologically. We want to provide individuals with the skills and education to allow them to sustain their own future, and their potential not be wasted. For us, success is being able to leave a Village and for it to thrive on its own.

Home, a place of safety and welcome, where a person's basic needs are met.

School, a place of education, academic and social.

Theatre, space for the expression and interaction with the arts and performance. A space of storytelling.

Garden, a place where people can tend the land in return for nourishment and economic sustainability.

Market, a place of enterprise and entrepreneurship, where crafts, goods and services can be sold or traded in order to support the general economic wellbeing of individuals and the community.

Sacred Space, a place of spiritual observation and learning. This might be a church, a mosque, a meditation room, or a place for mental or physical health healing. 

We believe each Village should have -
