The Brooke House Health & Wellbeing Centre seeks to support and improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of retired Royal Ulster Constabulary Officers, Military veterans, and their families, who have been physically injured, psychologically impacted and/or bereaved as a result of their service.
Who is eligible?
Brooke House Health & Wellbeing Centre is currently supported through two funding streams which set the eligibility criteria.
Clients must fall into at least one of the following categories:
|LIBOR funding||TSS funding|
|Retired Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Officers, Reserve Officers, and their families, who currently reside in or were permanently based in the Counties of Armagh, Fermanagh or Tyrone during their service pre 4th November 2001.||Veterans (British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force) and their families or carers who reside in Counties Fermanagh, Armagh, and Tyrone.|
|Veterans of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force post-2008 and their families, who reside in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.|
Who can refer?
Clients can self-refer by completing a client referral form or be referred by Statutory Services, the Community and Voluntary Sector or Armed Forces Charities and Associations. Brooke House is not a crisis service.
What is the process?
Once a referral is received and eligibility confirmed the client will receive an acknowledgement letter within 5 days. This letter asks them to contact Brooke House to arrange an initial screening appointment with one of our Health and Wellbeing Coordinators in Brooke House Health and Wellbeing Centre in Colebrooke Park, Co. Fermanagh. An initial screening appointment is an informal discussion to establish what services or support clients are eligible for based on their need, as a result of their service. Following this informal discussion, the client will be referred or signposted to appropriate services based on his or her individual need.
Once they have completed their service clients will be reviewed by a Health and Wellbeing Coordinator before moving on to the next step of service, if any.
