Supporting Carers of All Ages in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Fleet Auxiliary communities.



Carers Week, celebrated annually in June, is a time dedicated to recognising and supporting the vital work done by unpaid carers across the UK. These individuals provide essential care for family members, friends, or neighbours who are ill, disabled, or elderly, often with little recognition and at great personal cost. During Carers Week, we are amplifying the organisations we fund that support carers, that champion their needs and rights, and ensure that they receive the help and acknowledgment they deserve.  

To address the challenges carers face in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Fleet Auxilliary communities, the RNRMC has provided nearly £300,000 to Kids, Carers UK and The Ripple Pond since 2020. These organisations provide support to carers of all ages in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Fleet Auxiliary community, ensuring they have access to the resources they need. 



Our Neurodiversity Navigator, Bobbie, is also available to provide guidance to carers in the neuro-diverse community, helping them find services that will best meet their needs. Service personnel, those transitioning from service, and their families who are caring for neurodiverse young people and children, or who are neuro-diverse, are welcome to contact Bobbie for advice and guidance.  

The RNRMC worked in partnership with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (AFCFT) to put this support in place.
