RBLI’s Centenary Village

Barratt Developments and RBLI

 

The unique partnership between Barratt Developments and RBLI has been transformational. For the charity, it has meant the construction of new homes and a chance of a new life with sustainable employment for some of the UK’s most vulnerable veterans; for Barratt it represents its largest corporate donation to date, and an ongoing commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant. 
 
Extending beyond a monetary gift, the partnership has enabled RBLI to develop its infrastructure and has given them the skills, expertise and brand awareness to support more injured, homeless and disadvantaged veterans into independence and into work. The partnership has also raised the profile of Barratt’s Armed Forces Transition Programme, and provided opportunities for employees to engage on a personal level with the charity – with Barratt’s Graduate cohort fundraising to deliver two additional independent projects for RBLI, including a dementia-friendly garden in the charity’s residential nursing home, supported by a Gala Dinner that raised over £100,000.
 
Overall, the relationship between Barratt and RBLI represents a commitment to a set of shared values, utilising complementary skills and expertise to confront the challenges of veteran homelessness and provide long-lasting support for some of the most vulnerable people in society.
