The Black Stork Charity (The DNRC Charity)

The Black Stork Charity, or The DNRC Charity as it is now known, was established in May 2011 to raise funds and to facilitate the design, management and construction of the DNRC.

The Charity is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (no: 1141934). It is also a company limited by guarantee and registered at Companies House in England and Wales (no: 07619703).

The main charitable objects are concerned with the promotion of health through:

  • Provision of clinical rehabilitation of members of the Armed Forces
  • The promotion generally of rehabilitation medicine including research; and
  • The provision of facilities, equipment or services to restore people who have experienced a disabling disease or injury (regardless of profession) to optimum physical and psychological function and to enable such people to return to and remain in appropriate work

These objects reflect the broad vision of the DNRC as an establishment that will benefit both Defence and the nation, with the 2 facilities on the same site being mutually reinforcing in terms of sharing best practice, research and the opportunity to benefit from the healing environment that the site offers.

The Charity is not a grant giving body.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of the Charity. They meet regularly during the year to consider the current and longer term strategies and policies; the financial position of the Charity, and to receive reports from senior management.
