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.

Infirmary Bombing
Remembering the Soane Infirmary bombing

Today marks 80 years following the bombing of the Royal Hospital’s Infirmary during the Second World War. The magnificent Infirmary, which once stood on the current site of the National Army Museum, was hit by a parachute bomb on 16 April 1941 – destroying most of the building and tragically ending the lives of 13 people.
