About the organisation

Stoll

Stoll houses and supports vulnerable and disabled ex-Service men and women, including those who have been homeless. We provide housing, support and education for Veterans, to ensure that they are physically and mentally equipped to live independently in the community.

Stoll is both a housing association and a charity and for almost 100 years, we have provided homes and support services for vulnerable Veterans (ex-Armed Forces personnel). We have four housing schemes in London and our office is based at our largest scheme, Sir Oswald Stoll Mansions, in the Fulham Road Apart from providing housing, we also provide support services, to ensure that Veterans are equipped to live independently.

With over 13 years of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Stoll meets an increasing number of Veterans who suffer from PTSD and physical or sensory disabilities; many have been homeless. We offer adapted flats for those in wheelchairs. We also support the dependents of Veterans, most commonly the widows of previous generations, some of whom are now struggling with independent living. We offer a domestic support service for those who are frail, elderly or severely disabled, so that they can avoid going into a Care Home.
