ROYAL HOSPITAL CHELSEA

Onward with Purpose and Pride

The Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the Chelsea Pensioners, wanted to build awareness of its charitable status in order to increase donations and membership. We helped shift the brand focus from the institution to the people it supports. By centring more on the veterans and their stories, we widened the narrative around the Hospital and raised awareness of its outstanding status and relevance, winning both hearts and funds.

 

 

“Deep did an amazing job of bring our vision to life. In fact, they’ve created something much better than we could have imagined.”

BRINGING CHARACTER FRONT AND CENTRE

For over 300 years the Royal Hospital has been the home of the iconic Chelsea Pensioners; retired veterans of the British Army. Through brand workshops and collaboration with the in-house team, it became clear there was an opportunity to tell a wider audience what was already known within the institution: the hospital provides a home, but also a great sense of purpose and pride, something missing for many older people.

From World War II enigma code breakers to Iraq veterans, the lives of the Chelsea Pensioners have lived lives like few others. We have brought them to the fore, celebrating them as icons and as people who embody the positive possibilities of later life, through film and photography shot and directed by our in-house team.
