Veterans Hearing Fund 

The Veterans Hearing Fund was set up in 2016, following a five year, £10m commitment from HM Treasury using income generated from the LIBOR rate-fixing fines. A further £1.5m of funds was committed in 2019, following a successful bid to repurpose underspent funds from another LIBOR programme. 

The Veterans Hearing Fund issued over 3000 grants towards equipment and therapies to assist veterans whose hearing has been affected during their service.  

Veterans Mobility Fund 

The Veterans Mobility was set up in 2016, following a five year, £3m commitment from HM Treasury using income generated from the LIBOR rate-fixing fines.  

The Veterans Mobility issued over 270 grants towards specialist mobility equipment to assist veterans who suffered serious physical injuries during service.
