Swansea-based IT company supports veterans homeless charity

Swansea-based IT and communications firm SA1 Solutions has vowed to support a charity that supports homeless adults, young people, veterans and those with learning disabilities, with employees at the company signing up to do a skydive to raise money for the organisation.

Scott Kinsey and Alex Kamil, senior engineers at SA1 Solutions, will be doing the skydive on 10 November in a bid to raise as much money as possible for Alabaré’s Wales Homes for Veterans service.
Alabaré run 24 properties throughout the South West of England and Wales, providing a bed for over 100 veterans every night. Since its first home opened in 2009, Alabaré has grown to become the largest provider of supported accommodation for homeless and vulnerable outside of London.  In South Wales, the charity provides Homes for Veterans in Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff, Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil.  80 per cent of Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans users come from the Army or Reserves, and 70 per cent will have served at least one tour of front line duty.


Alabaré offers homeless and vulnerable veterans support with financial well-being, education, accommodation, community involvement, and training and employment. It also helps with supporting physical and mental health, overall well-being, and helping service users gain greater independence.
Alex Kamil said:
“We are really excited about signing up to do a skydive to raise money for Alabaré. The support Alabaré provides to those in need, particularly homeless veterans in Wales, is incredibly important and so we want to do our best to help raise as much funds as possible for the organisation. The company is fully behind Scott and I, and we hope to see further donations coming in for Alabaré ahead of them making the jump.”
