What is the Naval Service Recovery Centre?

Whether returning for duty or transitioning to civilian life, residents and day visitors at the Naval Service Recovery Centre can take part in activities and life skills courses to help them get back out doing what they enjoy most. The Centre aims to inspire those who have been wounded, injured or become sick while serving our country and enable them to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives.

The Naval Service Recovery Centre at HMS Drake consists of two purpose built facilities, offering the very best recovery atmosphere:

  • Parker VC – a specialist adaptive accommodation facility with 60 cabins and six family rooms
  • Endeavour Centre – a purpose built recovery complex offering state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment

The Endeavour Centre houses specialist rehabilitation facilities including:

  • 25 metre swimming pool
  • 25 metre sprung floor gymnasium
  • Fully adaptive Cardio Vascular equipment
  • Physiotherapy suite with purpose designed clinical treatment rooms
  • Hydrotherapy pool

The facility also houses a revolutionary Help for Heroes Support Hub which will gives Servicemen, women and Veterans access to specialist Service charities and agencies in a single location, ensuring that they are easily able to access the support they need.

Residents are encouraged to undertake their own recovery programme under the guidance of specialist staff. It may involve educational courses, work placements, medical appointments or sporting activities. These activities are designed to improve personal independence, raise morale, and develop camaraderie with others who have been injured or become sick.
