The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Benevolent Fund purchases specialist goods and services for our patients whilst they undertake their rehabilitation programme. In addition to these purchases the money raised provides patients with the opportunity to engage in social activities over the course of their stay at Headley Court. Socialising outside of Headley Court allows them to interact normally in public and forget about their injuries and rehabilitation for a few hours. The rehabilitation benefits are enormous, providing a much-needed boost of motivation during the difficult and lengthy period of their mental and physical rehabilitation.

The DMRC Benevolent Fund provides environmental and social integration opportunities to increase our patient’s exposure to activities of normal life that many of us take for granted. This may be in the form of trauma patients attending sporting events with large crowds, or a patient with chronic pain and fear of outside spaces travelling on public transport and attending a café, developing independence. The charity also provides a wide range of specialist equipment and holistic services including driving lessons in adaptive cars, special seat belts for high level spinal patients, and cardiac pacing machines.

Public generosity and fundraising allows the charity to provide the extra elements of rehabilitation that the public purse does not have the ability to provide. Your valued contribution makes the often difficult and traumatic road to rehabilitation a little easier for our patients. Knowing that they remain in the thoughts of the Great British public is a hugely positive reminder that their selfless commitment to the Armed Forces is repaid when they are injured.
