King Edward VII’s Centre for Veterans’ Health receive grant from Veterans’ Foundation

King Edward VII’s Hospital is delighted to announce that it has received a £30,000 grant to fund the Veterans’ Pain Management Programme, from the Veterans’ Foundation.

The award-winning veteran specific Pain Management Programme (PMP) delivered at King Edward VII’s Hospital is the only service of this kind in England. It provides veterans with practical strategies to help them improve the quality of their lives alongside pain. Additional funding is required to reach more veterans, decrease the impact on the NHS and provide our servicemen and women the specific support they need in a time efficient manner.

Alex Le Vey, Director of Philanthropy and Veterans Health at the Hospital said he is very grateful for the grant “Right now more than ever we need vital funds to enable our vital pain management sessions to take place. We are incredibly grateful to the Veterans’ Foundation for their support.”

Major General David Shaw, founder of the Veterans’ Foundation explain the charities’ mission:

“The Veterans’ Foundation has been set up to help fund charities and other charitable organisations that are helping serving and former members of the Armed Forces, and their dependants, who are in need.”

“The Veterans’ Foundation raises its money through the Veterans’ Lottery and donations. Since inception in July 2016, it has given over £11 million through over 600 grants to over 300 unique organisations, many of them small to medium-sized and very worthwhile charities, which are helping members of the Armed Forces community who are in need. Forecasts indicate the Veterans’ Foundation will make grants totalling £4.4 million this financial year.  The charities and other organisations we have helped include those tackling the challenges of mental and physical injuries, homelessness, unemployment, children’s loss of parents while serving and remembrance.  We encourage you to spread the word.”
