Real-life stories of our impact and the people we’ve helped to support
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity continues to provide revenue funding so that Royal Navy and Royal Marine veterans in Scotland can benefit from the best care and support from our specialist charity partner Erskine.
Leaving the Royal Navy or Royal Marines and re-entering the civilian world after a career in the military can be a daunting process for many.
In 2018, we were able to award a significant grant of close to £100000, to the relationship support charity, Relate. Our partnership gives free, confidential face-to-face, online and telephone counselling to naval personnel and their families.
The complete modernisation of the Drumfork Centre, a 1960’s community centre in the heart of naval service accommodation on the Clyde, is the single biggest capital building project in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity’s history.
The first Kings Camp exclusively for Naval Service families took place in HMS Neptune in 2009. It was rolled out to HMNB Portsmouth in 2012 and has grown from strength to strength ever since.
The pilot accommodation project at HMS NELSON in Portsmouth which created three self-contained family flats was so successful that we rolled out more Family Flats at RNAS Yeovilton and RNAS Culdrose during the course of 2018.
