Our model is based upon co-operation with other existing service charities both in London and beyond where we might enhance the support offer to service veterans. We currently hold a monthly ‘Gateway’ event aimed at attracting Service Veterans, including Merchant Navy of state pensionable age from the Greater London area. Each event has a theme aimed at the older cohort of veterans but which may be attended by others outside the target group. We have begun to establish a database of older veterans who might benefit from being invited to join activities routinely enjoyed by residents of the RHC, ie: – Chelsea Pensioners.
Our expansion plans are focused on collaboration with other service charities nationwide as well as the NHS for which association with the RHC brand might be of benefit.
