Tommy's Community

Working in partnership with the local and veteran communities

Tommy's Lounge works closely with the veteran community and also the local community around Huddersfield. On this page we will share some of the organisations who use Tommy's Lounge and host regular sessions with us.

If you would like to work with us in supporting the local or veteran community then please reach out to us to discuss how we can work together to support others.

When visiting Tommy’s Lounge you too can pay your respects at our memorial corner. You can also leave a personal memorial if you’ve lost a loved one whilst in service to their country.

Tommy’s Lounge is a self funded, not for profit, safe space for all.  Especially those with a military connection (Veterans and their Families).  Unfortunately with the cost of living we struggle to meet the overheads but WILL NOT allow the doors to close after literally saving lives.  Suicide rates amongst veterans is considerably higher than their civilian counterparts, and we work tirelessly to provide peer to peer support, work shops, gatherings, days out etc away from alcohol and drugs!

Please help us continue to save lives on a daily basis!
