Brooke House Health and Wellbeing Centre has been awarded funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust’s Sustaining Support Programme.
The award, of almost £100,000, comes at a vital time for the veteran support organisation, as Project Director, Joan Clements, tells us:
“This funding has kept Brooke House open. Without it we wouldn’t have made it past April. Before it was awarded, we had our board meeting planned to start the process of closing down Brooke House - that was the reality.”
The award will act as core funding to improve services and oversight for Brooke House, allowing staff members to continue to support veterans and their families through outreach, psychological support, peer support activities and health and wellbeing programmes. The funds will also enable Joan to have some deputy support, freeing up other staff members to focus on supporting clients.
