“We were delighted that the Trust recognised the innovative way in which RBLI is working to help veterans with multiple challenges achieve truly independent living. Its significant pledge of support was also a powerful catalyst in drawing wider attention to our holistic care model, and the further £2.3m in donations which followed was crucial to the continuing development and replication of this unique concept”.
