Launchpad has two houses - one in Speke, Liverpool and one in the Byker Wall Estate in Newcastle Upon Tyne
We provide accommodation and support to veterans to help them transition from military to civilian life.
Sing United are a community choir based in Newcastle upon Tyne. They are organising a special 'Lest We Forget' concert on Sunday 10th November at 6pm. All money raised at the concert will be donated to Launchpad's Avondale House.
Launchpad received a grant for £7,500 from the RAF Benevolent Fund, which contributed towards the costs of providing care for RAF veterans living at Avondale House.
The garden within the courtyard at Avondale House has received a makeover thanks to the magnificent efforts of volunteers from our partner organisations. What a transformation!
Thank you to MBDA UK who has donated a £4,000 grant towards the costs of supporting one of Launchpad’s residencies.
You can now donate to Launchpad every time you shop online at Amazon Smile!
