Notes to Editor
Each year, Erskine provides crucial support to nearly 1,000 Veterans and their spouses. However, to do so we must raise around £10 million annually in order to maintain the level of high-quality care provided. Regular donations to the charity ensure the care we have offered since 1916 to over 100,000 ex-service personnel, can continue uninterrupted.
Erskine is a family. Our strength lies in the very special blend of dedicated care, compassion and understanding we offer to our residents and their families. When Erskine was founded in 1916, our aim was to care for Service men and women who had been injured in active service. Today, care remains the cornerstone of our philosophy. We not only care for our veterans – we care about them.
As Scotland’s foremost provider of care for veterans and their spouses, Erskine provides unrivalled nursing, residential, respite and dementia care in four homes throughout Scotland. We also assist younger veterans who need help to begin the next chapter of their lives, offering social, recreation and training facilities at our Activity Centre and employment opportunities in partnership with Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Co.
On our Veterans Village in Bishopton we have 44 cottages for Veterans and their families as well as five Assisted Living Apartments and 24 Transitional Supported Accommodation Apartments – supporting Veterans of all ages.
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to maintain our commitment to care for Scotland’s veterans – without donations we simply cannot continue this work.
