I am delighted that plans for a £12.5m veterans’ care village at Broughton House in Salford have been approved.
Broughton House is our charity of the year and our social committee has been busy on a range of fundraising initiatives for the veterans’ care village.
As the only home for ex-servicemen and women in the North West, Broughton House celebrated its centenary last year.
Plans for the new village were submitted to Salford City Council in July, 2017 following public consultation.
Work on the scheme is due to start early in 2018.
The Broughton House Veterans Care Village is planned to be completed by 2020 and will include 64 nursing home bedrooms with a dementia wing; 34 independent living apartments; a military support hub featuring an advice centre, gym, treatment rooms, café, hair salon and meeting rooms; a memorial park with a cenotaph and remembrance walls and landscaped gardens featuring an all-weather bowling green and a bandstand.
As a firm that works closely with military veterans we are delighted to support Broughton House.
