Transition to Civilian Life

Welcome to 4th infantry Brigade's transition page. Our aim is to provide advice to personnel about to leave the Armed Forces and make informed decisions to settle within the Yorkshire or the north east of England.


The housing world is complicated and your first move should be to contact the Joint Services Housing Advice Office (JSHAO) who provide free and unbiased help on what the choices are. They provide one-day briefings as part of the resettlement process which spouses/partners are welcome to attend and also regional unit or garrison presentations around the country.

For single Service leavers, the Single Persons Accommodation Centre for the Ex-Services (SPACES) can provide you with help in finding somewhere to live.

For social housing, go to the relevant Local Authority website (follow the 'Find your local council' link on the right) and click on the housing tab. You will need to provide your Cessation of Entitlement certificate; giving the date you are due to vacate your military accommodation.

Some of the council websites have links through to companies known as ALMOs Arms Length Management Organisations which run the council housing on behalf of the council.

Other organisations providing housing for homeless veterans in the region include Norcare Veterans centre in Newcastle and Gateshead, The Beacon in Catterick, and The Galleries in Richmond. These homes provide housing and support for from five to 31 veterans for up to 12 months. Please follow the regional housing links below to find out more.
