QVSR provides housing and welfare support to active and retired seafarers, veterans of the armed forces and other homeless men with low support needs.

We seek to support residents to achieve lifestyle and personal development goals whether this is simple companionship, the development of leisure interests, training and employment opportunities or a move to more independent living.

Our Welfare Team is on hand to assist residents with benefit applications and access to individual grants as well as providing support with medial and emotional issues through signposting to appropriate organisations.

Our communal facilities include a modern restaurant, evening coffee shop, lounges with satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and computer room, activity rooms, gym, Chapel, ‘multi-faith’ or ‘quiet’ room, laundry and garden.

We offer sports facilities such as snooker, pool, badminton and table tennis, as well as a variety of leisure activities including film nights, quizzes and karaoke.
