The Brain and Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC) has received a new bursary that will benefit Navy and Marine veterans requiring rehabilitation.

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, and Greenwich Hospital have together contributed £12,000 over twelve months to allow Navy and Marine veterans access to BASIC’s specialist services.

The funding will support a new bursary for navy and marine veterans to access psychological therapies and neuro-physiotherapy for recovery support with neurological injuries and PTSD. This is a great opportunity to continue supporting veterans to rebuild their lives.

Referrals for the programme can be made through the Veterans bursary referral form.

For more information and for referrals, please visit BASIC’s website.

BASIC also offers innovative 3MDR therapy using the CAREN, which is a new therapy for military veterans who experience forms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that currently resist treatment. Read more.
