Grant Awarded for Elderly Veterans Care in North West England

As part of a long-standing partnership with Broughton House Veteran Care Village in Salford, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has awarded a £118,736 grant towards the charity’s care for elderly Armed Forces veterans.

Founded in 1916, Broughton House is the only retirement and nursing home for elderly veterans in North West England. The grant will enable the charity to provide high quality personal care and support to 36 Army veterans over the next 12 months and contribute to the care home costs for eight veterans.

Broughton House’s care services focus on improving veterans’ quality of life and encompass specialist dementia support, social activities to reduce loneliness and in-house physiotherapy services. Broughton House was recently transformed into a modern complex featuring a 64-bed care home and six retirement apartments.

Karen Miller, Chief Executive of Broughton House Veteran Care Village, said:

“We are extremely grateful to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity for its continued support of our veterans. The magnificent award of nearly £120,000 towards the care of our Armed Forces veterans will make a huge difference, especially as the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis has made life difficult for all charities.

“Our new Veteran Care Village was recently completed and provides a fantastic environment for our residents. With ongoing support from local and Armed Forces communities, as well as organisations such as ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the future for Broughton House is very bright.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief of Staff at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, added:
“We are always proud to support Broughton House’s high quality and compassionate care services. We are committed to helping all elderly veterans enjoy peace, comfort and dignity in their final years.”
