Funding Boost for Broughton House

Funding Boost for Broughton House

Broughton House has been awarded £23,382 by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and its funding partner Greenwich Hospital.

The money will go towards the ongoing cost of providing residential care to our veterans.

Broughton House, which is currently home to 32veterans, is being transformed into a Veteran Care Village in a £14m redevelopment.

Once completed, the two-acre site will feature 64 nursing home bedrooms with a dementia wing, up to 30 independent living apartments, a military support hub, a memorial park and landscaped gardens with a bowling green and bandstand.

Rhys Edwards, fundraising and marketing manager at Broughton House, said: “We are delighted that the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Greenwich Hospital are supporting us for another year.

“Their continued support has been vital in enabling us to provide the quality of care that our Royal Navy and Royal Marines veterans truly deserve.

“As we transition into becoming the UK’s first Veteran Care Village, we look forward to working in partnership with them over the next 12 months and beyond.”

Mandy Lindley, the RNRMC’s director of relationships and funding, said: “We are very pleased to continue supporting Broughton House, helping them to carry out vital care for our naval veterans in the Manchester area.

“The work of Broughton House exemplifies the RNRMC’s vision of lifelong support for sailors and marines, and helps to ensure that those who have served their country are not left behind in old age.”
