Veterans Medical Funds

The Royal British Legion has introduced a new Veterans Medical Funds programme providing support for veterans with hearing loss and support for veterans with serious physical injury.

The programme is funded through a five year, £13m commitment from HM Treasury using income generated from the Libor rate-fixing fines. It has two elements: support for veterans with hearing loss and support for veterans with serious physical injury.

Both of the Funds described will be available to Veterans across the UK.  For further information click here to go to the designated website.
