Charity information

Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal

The Royal Hospital Chelsea provides a home for army veterans who have served 22 years or have a disability pension.

The Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal is to keep this home running for the next 300 years.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    Since its foundation by King Charles II in 1682, the Royal Hospital Chelsea has served continuously as a retirement and hospice for veteran soldiers, commonly known as the Chelsea Pensioners.
    Our Appeal seeks to raise £35million to complete a programme of modernisation, necessary to meet the needs of the 21st Century and conform to current care standards. This project is divided into two phases; the first being the building of a new state-of-the-art infirmary, already under construction, and the second being the upgrade and modernisation of the pensioners’ accommodation, known as the Long Wards.
    As well as being a historically significant site, The Royal Hospital Chelsea aims to become a beacon of excellence providing first class care to the Nation’s elderly veteran soldiers, who have given a lifetime of service to our country.
    With the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is paramount that the Royal Hospital Chelsea remains a place where, today’s and tomorrow’s veterans are able see out their twilight years in comfort and peace.
