Almost 13,000 former soldiers who served in the British Army are now homeless, as reported in a Sunday People investigation earlier this year.
A high proportion of these returned servicemen and women suffer post traumatic stress disorder as well as other mental health issues.
This problem is prevalent around the world, with many other communities and governments struggling to work out how to help these people who put their lives in danger for the safety of their country.
Lewis McInnes is hoping to raise awareness for their plight by undertaking a huge walk from Glasgow to London.
Lewis, who’s currently preparing himself for his application to the armed forces, says he wants to put my training to good use, so I came up with the idea that he wanted to do a massive walk for charity. He discovered people tend to do the West Highland Way in Scotland, but wanted a bigger challenge.
This is no small feat, with the walk estimated to be roughly 387 miles (622 km), which the Chryston local hopes to complete within two weeks.
