BRITISH Home, one of the UK’s oldest charities, has announced its 2021 campaign to raise £500,000 in order to advance its specialised care and rehabilitation for people living with Neuro-disability.
Established in 1892, British Home provides residential care, therapy, support and hope for people with Neuro-disability, typically coming from injuries to the brain or nervous system sustained from accidents, strokes and other acquired conditions. There are more than half a million hospital admissions every year in Britain, which could lead to Neuro-disability.
2021 is a pivotal year for the charity, which is preparing for several developments to its historic facility in South London, including a new High-Dependency Unit for people with more complex and more demanding conditions. The new unit will provide personalised one-to-one care, therapy and activities facilitated by highly-skilled staff and the most up-to-date equipment.
This will mark the first stage of a series of phases of developments to the facility, helping British Home continue to progress its support for people with Neuro-disability and their families.
Fundraising for the new developments will come at different stages throughout the year. To participate, potential supporters and commercial partners can go to www.britishhome.org.uk/development for more details.
Paul Perkin, CEO of British Home, said:
“Over the past 150 years, our mission has stayed the same – to provide hope, rehabilitation and care to people with Neuro-disability and their families. British Home has continued to adapt to the changing world, which means that the Home has remained a centre of innovation and hope for all who rely on our services. All funding secured will help us continue our great work, to recruit the best people and to advance our offering for many years to come.”
Located in Streatham, British Home’s bespoke and personalised approach has earned it a reputation as a centre of excellence for rehabilitation, long and short-term residential care, respite support and palliative care. It offers some of the most progressive practices within neuro-disability care whilst providing bespoke, dignified and personalised care for those affected by neurological conditions resulting from accident or trauma, stroke, or a consequence of a degenerative condition or illness.
