STOLL Patronage

Stoll (formerly Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation) is the UK’s only charity providing the holistic support needed to fully integrate some of our most vulnerable Veterans back into civilian life. Sir Oswald Stoll (20 January 1866 – 9 January 1942) was an Australian-born British theatre manager and the co-founder of the Stoll Moss Group theatre company. He also owned Cricklewood Studios and film production company Stoll Pictures, which was one of the leading British studios of the Silent era.

Stoll (Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation) – Stoll was a philanthropist who donated the land in 1916 for the Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation, a charity in Fulham, London for disabled soldiers returning from World War I and their families. The foundation continues to house disabled ex-servicemen and women to this day, but in addition also provides supported housing for veterans suffering from mental ill health, and those who, having left the Forces, have found themselves homeless. The foundation provides rehabilitative support, IT tuition, health and well-being activities and back-to-work apprenticeships to over 230 veterans. The foundation is committed to building and sustaining communities within which ex-Service people can live independently, positively and healthily.

At Stoll’s each tenant is given a care, advice and support package tailored to his or her individual needs. For those with physical disabilities they comprehensive care and a range of activities to maximise quality of life. However, many younger Veterans battle with much deeper, social issues and Stoll provides intensive support for individuals that tackles not only the basics of accommodation, income and physical and mental health but also offers an array of services that facilitate their full and active participation in civilian life such as back-to-work programmes, apprenticeships, a wider range of health and wellbeing programmes as well as a range of advocacy and grants.
