Wren Hall receives Armed Forces accreditation

Wren Hall in Selston, Nottinghamshire, has received accreditation for providing exceptional care and support to Armed Forces veterans and their families.

The home has been recognised by the Veteran Friendly Framework (VFF) for identifying veterans and their wellbeing needs. The aim of the VFF is to better support the practical, emotional, and social needs of the Armed Forces community by providing training and resources to assess and improve the care they offer. The initiative aims to improve social connections and deliver improved health and wellbeing outcomes for over 25,000 veterans living in care homes across England.

To achieve Veteran Friendly status, Wren Hall was required to meet eight standards. These include recognising Armed Forces status within care plans, signing up to the Armed Forces Covenant, addressing social isolation, and providing referrals to support services such as the local Royal British Legion branch.

Wren Hall MD Anita Astle MBE said: “We are pleased to receive VFF accreditation, which sits nicely alongside our Gold Standard Framework in Care Homes and our Meaningful Care Matters accreditation. At Wren Hall, we are dedicated to ensuring that all our family members feel recognised and valued, regardless of their background. So we are proud to offer our veterans, and any future veterans who join our home, the peace of mind that they will receive the highest quality of care with us.”
