Community Grant Awarded to RBLI to help deliver its STEP-IN Welfare Programme to help support Armed Forces Veterans with disabilities

We are delighted to award a Community Grant to RBLI to support its STEP-IN Programme

We’re delighted to award a Community Grant to Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) to support its STEP-IN Welfare Programme.  The programme integrates health, mental health, welfare, employability and supports people with disabilities, many of whom are Armed Forces veterans. The Foundation’s grant contributes to a programme which supports 22 people to overcome homelessness and create a completely new life from scratch.

RBLI supports people with disabilities from anywhere in the UK, many of whom are vulnerable, wounded and sick veterans. The charity provides homes, care and welfare support in its diverse ‘village’ in Aylesford, Kent. Founded in 1919, RBLI has been providing homes, direct employment opportunity and nursing care for more than 100 years.

“We are thrilled to be able to support RBLI’s STEP-IN Programme with a Community Grant. The grant will provide critical funding to 22 vulnerable people at a time when they need it the most. It will provide support with mental health, welfare and employability and help veterans to re-build and improve their lives.”
Jonathan Freeman MBE, Chief Executive Officer of CareTech Foundation
“We could not be more grateful of the support from the CareTech Foundation. The funds will go directly to supporting RBLI’s welfare, employability, and care services for disadvantaged veterans, including those facing significant mental health challenges. The support from the CareTech Foundation will have a genuine impact on those who need our help most.”
Lisa Farmer , Chief Executive of RBLI
