The Royal British Legion’s Veterans Medical Funds programme open for applications

Date published: 14/02/2018


This programme is funded through a five year, £13m commitment from HM Treasury using income generated fromlogo the Libor rate-fixing fines.

It has two elements: support for veterans with hearing loss and support for veterans with serious physical injury.

The Veterans Hearing Fund (VHF) provides support to veterans who acquired hearing loss during Service where there is a wellbeing need that can not be met through statutory services (e.g. the NHS).

The Ministry of Defence has put in place measures to ensure that a Service person discharged with Service-attributable serious physical injury will have any clinically prescribed specialist wheelchair or orthotic equipment by discharge date together with a five-year warranty. The Veterans Mobility Fund (VMF) will support those veterans who have Service-related serious physical injury who fall outside this provision or whose warranty has expired. To be eligible for VMF an individual will normally be in receipt of a War Pension or have received an award under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.
