Preparing to move to our new Rustington home and starting to recruit

Published on 7 Jul 2023

We are calling out for local people to join our transformational team as we prepare to open our new Rustington home later this year.

We decided to move from our current south coast home in Brighton in 2021 and, soon after, identified the former home of the RAF Benevolent Fund in Rustington as the perfect location for us to move. 

Almost 18 months of building and renovation work is starting to come to an end, and we are now preparing for a first phase of opening. Our new Blind Veterans UK Rustington Centre will provide wellbeing support and rehabilitation to blind veterans, rebuilding lives after sight loss. It will start to open in September and begin supporting veterans achieve independence, health, and happiness straight away.

Over the coming months we will be recruiting into a full range of roles but initially we are looking to welcome people to join our Health and Wellbeing team including care specialists and Registered Nurses, our Housekeeping and Maintenance team, and our Hospitality and Administration team.
