We would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to all of our brilliant volunteers. You give up your time to help with collections, to cheer, to support and to organise fundraising activities. We find it amazing that so many of you dedicate time to helping us to support our service personnel, their families and veterans.

We value every single volunteer, supporter and champion – we really couldn’t do this without you. Please get in touch in you are interested in a volunteering role with The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

Would you like to become part of the RNRMC family?

Maybe you could man a stall at an open day or event? Or cheer our runners taking on a marathon? Maybe you could help at a street collection or a homecoming parade? Think you could do it? Here are a few suggestions of how you can get involved.

Opportunities for Serving Personnel and Civilians

Event Support Volunteer - We have a presence at events up and down the country, particularly during the summer season. We are always grateful for the support of volunteers at events such as Yeovilton Air Day, Collingwood Open Day, Bournemouth Air Festival and National Armed Forces Day (to name just a few!). If you think you would enjoy manning our stand for a few hours, helping to run a children’s activity or perhaps collecting donations then we would love to hear from you.

Community Event Co-ordinator – Our Head Office is based in Portsmouth so having volunteers around the UK (and even world-wide) is really key to getting our charity message out into the community. Valuable volunteers who want to organise and host fundraising events for us are awesome – could this be you?

Establishment Volunteer – The Royal Navy and Royal Marines are based in lots of different establishments, lodger units and bases. Our volunteers visit their local establishment or base regularly and are much loved representatives of the charity supporting, our Regional Fundraisers on a variety of different events and projects. If you are sociable and outgoing (with perhaps a little naval knowledge) then being an establishment volunteer could be the perfect role for you.

Office Volunteer – There are roles available at our Head Office, across a number of different departments for volunteers who want to regularly give their time to support the smooth running of the organisation. If you’re local to Portsmouth this might be the ideal volunteering experience for you.

Opportunities for Serving Personnel only

Charity Champion – If you love what we do and want to support the Charity that little bit more, then perhaps you can consider becoming one of our Charity Champions. A point of contact on board or at your unit or squadron, you will become an important part of our Regional Network of volunteers. We will keep you in the loop about all the latest developments and we can give you ideas on how you can get your oppos to support the Charity – sponsored head shave anyone?!

Regional Committee Member – We have regional committees at Faslane and Devonport, made up of serving personnel from all sorts of trades and tribes. These friendly, passionate groups of people volunteer alongside our Regional Fundraisers to connect their establishment with the work of the Charity. These volunteer committees take an oversight of what is going on in their area and help to engage both the serving and civilian communities in supporting the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. We are hoping to set up similar committees at Yeovilton and Culdrose – could you help?

This list isn't exhaustive! Do you have an idea for how you would like to volunteer for us? Perhaps you have particular skills as well as time? Whatever your idea is or however you would like to help, please do get in touch - we look forward to hearing from you.
