We are working tirelessly to keep our services running through the coronavirus pandemic so that we’re here for veterans and their families whilst keeping them, our staff and supporters safe. Going forward, we are focusing on face-to-face community delivery and digital services. This means that we will not be operating out of three of our Recovery Centres for the foreseeable future (Catterick, Colchester and Plymouth). For more information on this, please click here.
Who can use Chavasse VC House Recovery Centre?
Our recovery services at Chavasse VC House are available to all wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.
What is Chavasse VC House Recovery Centre?
Whether returning for duty or transitioning to civilian life, residents and day visitors at Chavasse VC House 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 Centre has been specially designed to offer the very best recovery atmosphere. It offers 27 single en-suite bedrooms and two family suites. A creative kitchen, presentation room, two lounges, and an adaptive gym with specialist equipment also form part of the Centre. The Hope on the Horizon Garden provides a space to relax and take stock.
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.
The relaxed atmosphere promotes general wellbeing, and 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.
