Latest News: We have recently received correspondence from the Royal British Legion with regard to the Veterans Hearing Fund which received £10 million from the LIBOR Scandal to support Veterans with a hearing loss as a result of military service. Unfortunately, it is not good news to many of you who are either waiting for funding allocation or being accepted by the Royal British Legion and, despite a further allocation of funding, they cannot meet the demand. Many of you will receive a letter from the RBL stating this and, although they are seeking further funding, it is unlikely that this will come to fruition.UKVHH is passionate and determined to continue to help Veterans with a hearing problem and have taken appropriate action to seek funding from other sources to ensure that both those registered with us and any further applications will be honored. This is not a ‘quick fix’ and will take some time for us to procure the funding and support however, we will keep you informed as things progress. I will state that our office team is working continuously with other organisations and this is looking extremely positive with many of the larger military charities and other outlets.It is important to us that we continue to help Veterans with hearing issues and will be branching out into other associated medical problems but once again, this is work in progress and involves working with other major organisations and charities to ensure that only the ‘best’ care is provided.We are determined as ever and despite being a challenge to us, we will take the ‘Bull by the Horns’ and work hard to get things back on track for you all.Keep an eye on our Social Media and website for future updates and remember we are “hear for you”
For those of you currently awaiting funding from the Royal British Legion, you would have received an email/letter stating that your application has been either registered or put on hold for 90 days without any further information. They have now stated that they cannot guarantee to fund all of the applications. It is apparent that the money given by the Government from the Libor Scandal is coming to the end of the five-year cycle and, there is no reassurance that there will be further funds being made available. We understand this can only be a disappointing message to you all including ourselves who, are so passionate about helping Veterans with a hearing problem resulting from military service.
We at UK Veterans Hearing Help are not taking this Royal British Legion funding uncertainty laying down and we will endeavor to continue to help Veterans by changing the way we operate and, are now putting in place several different measures which will ensure that we can continue to support you all. It is our intent to:
Please be assured that we are working towards a positive outcome for those of you who are taking the journey for a better quality of life and, we will do our utmost to ensure that your application is given the highest level of support that we can give. Our team, Ben and I care a great deal about you all and it is our determination, direction, and desire that will ensure that we can continue giving that special service you all deserve. We are proud to say that we have already managed to obtain funding for over 400 Veterans, are continuing to look after well over 2000 and have no desire to stop supporting you all.
