Message from our CEO

COVID-19, General
24 March 2020

In accordance with Government guidelines, the offices of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity are closed to minimise the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak. However, as the national charity of the Naval Service our primary objective is to ensure that there is no disruption to our grants programmes, so that we continue to provide the support on which so many sailors, marines, veterans and Naval Service families count on us to provide. Our services and support continue to operate remotely and our support line telephone number 023 93871568 is staffed during normal office hours to assist and advise members of our community who need us.

Sadly, we have had to take the decision to cancel or defer several public events and initiatives due to take place in the coming weeks and months. It is always disappointing to have to remove events from our programme, and we are working hard to reschedule them wherever possible. Further details will be on our website and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Finally, as you’ll be only too aware, this is a rapidly-changing situation. We’ll continue to follow Government advice as it develops and will let you know if we need to make more changes.
In the meantime we would like to wish you and your families well. We are committed to standing by your side throughout this unprecedented situation and beyond.

Adrian Bell

Chief Executive
