We are delighted to award a £133,827 grant to Care for Veterans to help enable its specialist care services for disabled military veterans.
Our charity works in close partnership with Care for Veterans which has provided long-term nursing, rehabilitation and end-of-life care to disabled armed forces veterans for over 100 years. Its 60-bed facility in Worthing offers specialist support to veterans with acquired brain injury and other neurological conditions. Last year, the charity provided care for 111 residents, 45 per cent of whom were Army veterans – the average age was 73.
Our grant will enable the charity to continue providing a wide range of services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social and well-being activities, speech and language therapy, chaplaincy and personal care.
Andy Neaves, Chief Executive at Care for Veterans, said:
“Our charity is hugely grateful for the loyal and longstanding support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity in helping us care for Army veterans of all ages. Our comprehensive range of services aim to enhance their daily lives by improving independence, dignity and self-esteem.”
Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief of Staff at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, added:
“We are always proud to support Care for Veterans’ rehabilitation services for those with complex neurological conditions and to help them improve their mobility and quality of life. Our charity is committed to helping all veterans enjoy independence, comfort and dignity in their final years.”
