WIASP is a UK-based charity which, since 1972, has provided lifetime welfare support to anyone of Caribbean Heritage who has served in the British Armed Forces. WASP is a volunteer-based organisation with a network of trained case workers throughout the UK and also in the Caribbean, the USA and Canada, where large numbers of Caribbean veterans now reside.
WIASP assists both serving personnel and veterans and their families with the provision of:
Pension issues; helping those in financial difficulties to receive all the benefits they are entitled to and seeking funds from other sources if they are still in need.
Short-term and emergency accommodation for Service families, rough-sleeping soldiers and those leaving prison.
One-to-one support to underpin the process of transition into civilian working life.
For families of injured personnel and bereaved families. Emotional and practical support to help those affected by a range of crimes including physical assault, sexual violence, burglary, racism and domestic abuse.
In addition to its welfare work with military veterans, WASP supports its local community in Lambeth through a range of provision including: Luncheon Clubs for pensioners; supplementary Saturday Schools; mentoring, vocational and sports programmes for young people at risk of joining gangs and hosting community groups’ activities within its Headquarters.
