Brooke House Health & Wellbeing Centre is a warm and welcoming space.
Brooke House is located in Colebrooke Park in Co Fermanagh. Brooke House is an Ely Centre project, initially funded in 2018 by The Chancellor using LIBOR Funds and in 2019 through the Armed Forces Covenant under Tackling Serious Stress.
This visionary new service has been established to support police and military veterans, and their immediate family, who’ve been physically injured, psychologically impacted, or bereaved as a result of their service. Check our detailed eligibility criteria here.
