Royal British Legion Funding

The Royal British Legion veterans’ medical funds programme provides support for veterans with hearing loss.

Set up in 2015 the programme is funded through a five year, £10million commitment from HM Treasury using income generated from the Libor rate-fixing fines.

Veterans Hearing Fund

The Veterans Hearing Fund provides support to veterans who suffer a hearing loss but their needs cannot be helped through statutory services such as the NHS. The programme may be able to fund hearing aids, assistive listening devices for access to the television and/or telephone and management for peripherals or therapies such as lip reading and tinnitus management therapies.

The Veterans Hearing Fund (VHF) is a fund managed and run by the Royal British Legion that provides support to veterans who have a hearing loss. Silver and Rose Audiology services can ease this pathway for you.

Since the fund was launched in 2015, it has helped many Veterans hear better
