Our television operation responds to applications from the main service charities for the provision of televisions and licences to beneficiaries who are housebound.
Such support brings significant benefit to thousands of eligible, deserving people. For many of them a television is their only entertainment and their main link with the outside world.
In some cases we can provide large screen televisions for care homes and veterans’ homes.
If you think that you, or someone you know, may be eligible for our help please contact us, or your military association or service benevolent charity.
Comments from our beneficiaries include:
A 51-year-old Army veteran with mobility difficulties wrote: “I would love to thank you all for your help. Once I’m back on my feet, healthy and back to work I would go out of my way to help your association.”
We provided a television to the Kairos Community Trust, a charity which provides accommodation and support for homeless people with substance misuse related problems, for their dedicated Army house in south east London. The Trust wrote:
“Thanks to the Not Forgotten Association we have a huge television in the living room which has now became the focal point of the house, it allows the guys to interact, play computer games and connect to the internet in a safe clean and sober environment. It also has become a hub for the wider community of Ex-Service guys within Kairos. So far over the last two years we have helped over 40 ex-Service individuals… I would like to thank you and the Not Forgotten Association for their support with our project, it means so much to me and the guys and the television will stay in the house as a legacy.”
