Royal British Legion Industries: Supporting Britain's bravest across the UK
Since 1919 Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) has provided care and homes for Britain’s Armed Forces veterans and their families. For almost 100 years RBLI has helped veterans with mental and physical disabilities develop skills, build new lives and regain their independence; on the RBLI village in Aylesford, Kent, and nationwide.
The veterans and the families RBLI support have often slipped through the cracks and live incredibly challenging lives. Their needs are varied and can include homelessness, alcohol misuse and mental health issues. Veterans usually arrive having recently faced a crisis, whether that is bereavement, family break-up, a shocking diagnosis or as a result of unemployment, they are struggling with unwelcome life changes.
Supporting those who are struggling to cope with civilian life
The RBLI Village is home to over 300 veterans; RBLI’s unique impact is that through its five types of accommodation, ranging from emergency shelters to high dependency care, RBLI can support any veteran at any age with any health need. RBLI focuses on supporting those who are struggling to cope with civilian life whether this is to afford a home, live independently or gain employment skills. The RBLI programmes empower people to regain their independence; they include STEP-IN, LifeWorks and Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company (BBMC).
