Making Life Better for Naval Family Carers
Many young people from all walks of life provide care support to family members, but with one parent away at sea the responsibility can fall heavily on the children in Royal Navy households. Seventeen year old Anna* is an example of the difference that the transformation difference the RNRMC can make to the life of carers in Naval families, thanks to its partnership with the charity KIDS and funding of the pioneering Young Carers project.

‘Strengthening Families – By Your Side’ has been developed by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) and Naval Families Federation (NFF), in partnership with the Royal Navy, Kings Active Foundation, Home-Start UK and Relate and is the biggest demonstration to date of collaboration within the Third Sector to address the specific needs and circumstances of Royal Navy families.
