This year, thanks to an increased grant of £51,684 given by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity to Revitalise, a charity providing much-needed respite holidays for disabled people and those who care for them, 146 disabled Army veterans and their carers will receive well-deserved holiday breaks with care.
The Soldiers’ Charity provides grants to dozens of charities including Revitalise, who specialise in providing respite support to people who need the reassurance of 24-hour on-call nurse-led care in order to have a proper holiday. Underpinning all Revitalise does is one simple, immutable belief – everybody needs a break. The charity is delighted that many more members of the Army family in need of a break will now be able to draw upon Revitalise’s expert support.
Chris Simmonds, Chief Executive of Revitalise, said: “Revitalise has enjoyed a long and very fruitful relationship over many years with ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and we are overjoyed that this has been reflected in an even bigger grant for our essential work supporting the Army family. The funds kindly donated by The Soldiers’ Charity enable hundreds of disabled ex-service personnel and their carers to take much-needed respite holidays at Revitalise’s three accessible centres each year. The grant is already helping us make significant changes to the quality of life for members of the Army community, offering them a lifeline from the daily pressures that giving and receiving care can bring.”
