Hello Friend
Join us in supporting veterans through the winter
During the cold, dark nights as we lean into February, it’s never been more important to consider the lives of so many veterans braving the elements and suffering from homelessness, addiction and mental or physical health issues.

It is our mission to ensure that every veteran is cared for and supported throughout the year, and we urge you to join us in doing what you can to help. Whether it be through donations, fundraising, or simply raising awareness across the UK; we value your ongoing support.

Are you ready for The Great Tommy Sleep Out?
The Great Tommy Sleep Out is a fundraising challenge designed to collectively raise awareness and show support to the thousands of veterans that are experiencing homelessness in the UK right now. During the month of March, we are asking for your support by braving a cold night camping out under the stars while fundraising for our most vulnerable veterans.
Huge thank you to the Veterans’ Foundation
The Veterans’ Foundation has provided unwavering support to RBLI in recent times, awarding generous grants to our Lifeworks programme and Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company. These grants have helped deliver employment support and one-to-one welfare and development for ex-servicemen and women across the UK.
“I have no doubt that I genuinely benefit from an understanding ear and the belief that my welfare is first and foremost in any discussions I have had about my work and/or disability. I appreciate that this level of support can only be provided as a direct result of the extra funding we receive from the Veterans’ Foundation and those who play the Veterans’ lottery.” – Carl, Veteran, Royal Navy Submariner
Luxury Dementia Care Home – Gavin Astor House
Our luxury care home, Gavin Astor House, focusses on high quality care to each and every resident and has recently undergone a complete refurbishment. This means additional beds, specialist living quarters, and around the clock support from our team of health care professionals.

This brand new renovation also enables us to provide dedicated and trusted care specifically to those suffering from dementia – and we are encouraging those who are interested to book a tour to see for themselves.

The new BBMC website is now LIVE!
Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Co. (BBMC) is a leading social enterprise of RBLI, and the UK’s leading signage maker with a team of over 100 people; 70% of whom are veterans from the Armed Forces, those with a physical or mental disability, or both.

The new website has been developed to create a more fluid and customer-friendly experience, allowing visitors to navigate through pages with ease and learn more about our history, values, products and services; further highlighting BBMC’s status as a market-leader and ground-breaking social enterprise.

Does your company have a Payroll Giving scheme?

Did you know 7th-13th February 2022 is Payroll Giving week?

Payroll Giving is an easy, tax-efficient way of making regular donations to your favourite charities straight from your gross pay. Donating this way means the tax you would have paid on your contribution also goes to RBLI. Even small, regular donations can make a big difference to our Armed Forces Veterans.

It’s quick and FREE for companies to setup Payroll Giving and is considered to be an important part of their Corporate Responsibility. Show your support by speaking to your Payroll team and giving to RBLI this Payroll Giving week.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support for RBLI.
