Grants from Charitable Trusts and Foundations

We depend on grants from charitable trusts and foundations to provide the outstanding care we provide to the Chelsea Pensioners. Their support is critical to our future, ensuring that the Royal Hospital can continue its historic role as home to our Nation’s veterans.

Support from grant-giving bodies enabled us to build the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary, plant new allotments to boost the wellbeing of our veterans and has contributed to the restoration of our important Grade I listed buildings. With further support we can continue to improve our care and facilities, carry out vital maintenance and meet our running costs, so the Chelsea Pensioners enjoy the best quality of life and this iconic institution can look forward to a bright future.

Brompton Cemetery Seed Sowing
Sowing wildflowers in memory of past Chelsea Pensioners

On 6 May, Chelsea Pensioners and members of the Royal Hospital’s grounds team joined representatives from the Royal Parks, the Royal Parks Guild and the Friends of Brompton Cemetery to sow a patch of wildflower seeds in Brompton Cemetery as part of the Battlefields and Butterflies initiative.

Chelsea Pensioner Centenarians
100 years old and still going strong

Recent research backs up the anecdote that Chelsea Pensioners not only live considerably longer than their peers outside (by over five years, on average), but that their lifetimes once they come to the Royal Hospital are extending, year on year. This strongly suggests that the care and community here contribute to greater longevity – as well as improving quality of life.
