In 2015 The Royal British Legion launched The Veterans Hearing Fund (VHF) to provide compensation to veterans with hearing problems, above all, hearing loss, hearing aids and tinnitus. This help provides veterans with equipment and therapies to improve their hearing health and well being.

The funding comes from the LIBOR fines and totals £13 million. The Royal British Legion researched and campaigned both through Lost Voices and the 2015 Manifesto. The manifesto included veterans’ access to hearing aids as a key policy recommendation.
