Beneficiaries lie at the heart of The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity's purpose, it is our duty to remain focused on their needs. Since 2007, we have funded projects and facilities that boost morale for those who serve today. We also distribute millions of pounds annually to military charities which care for the children, families and veterans of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

Veterans Gateway is the first point of contact for veterans seeking support. 

The service has a network of over 30 expert partners, coming from across the military and non-military, not for profit sector. With more partners being added, the service can help on a number of areas, including:

  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Finances
  • Living independently
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Physical health
  • Families and communities
