Soldiers outside Personnel Recovery Centre

Edinburgh PRC

Edinburgh House Personnel Recovery Centre (PRC) opened in 2009 and has residential accommodation for 12 personnel, with further capacity for up to 15 day attendees. It has office areas, ensuite accommodation, a gym, computer suite, classrooms, dining hall and recreational areas.

Originally established by the Army as its 'pathfinder' centre, in partnership with the Scottish Government and the veterans' charity Erskine, Edinburgh House received £0.75m in start-up financing from Help for Heroes. 

The Royal British Legion took over the running costs of the PRC in January 2011, with the Army continuing to provide staff. The Legion has also given £5m to fund Edinburgh PRC until 2020.

PRCs are part of the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Recovery Capability scheme, to which the Legion has donated £50m to provide for the operation of PRCs and build and run the Battle Back Centre for the next 10 years.
