VOS awarded grant by RNRMC and Greenwich Hospital

Veterans Outreach Support (VOS) is immensely grateful to the RNRMC and Greenwich Hospital for their recent grant of £65,000


The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC), in partnership with Greenwich Hospital, has awarded Veterans Outreach Support (VOS) with a grant of £65,000. This grant was received through the RNRMC’s ‘Through Life’ funding pathway. It is in addition to the RNRMC’s other generous grant this year of £25,000 for another project being delivered by VOS. 

This pathway acknowledges that support can be required at any stage in life, and channels funds to provide tangible difference at whichever stage it is needed.


With this grant, VOS will be able to continue providing camaraderie, connection and compassion to improve the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of Royal Navy and Royal Marines veterans and their partners. Thank you to the continued generosity of the RNRMC, the financial support is invaluable to our delivery to our VOS Community. Ian Millen, CEO of VOS 


As a registered charity, Veterans Outreach Support needs funding to be able to deliver support to veterans and their partners in a variety of ways, and such funding is critical in supporting our service users.

  • VOS delivers Wellbeing support by organising activities, events and social groups to promote camaraderie, community and fun.
  • Welfare support can take many forms and VOS assists with tackling loneliness, signposting, advocacy and accessing benefits.
  • Mental health support is often crucial for veterans, serving personnel and their family members, and VOS provides support in the form of cognitive, behavioural and emotional wellbeing therapies or treatments.
