RMA – The Royal Marines Charity

Royal Marines Charity logo

RMA – The Royal Marines Charity exists to provide through life charitable support for Royal Marines, their families, veterans and cadets and offer a range of services to both serving and veterans.

Financial – we provide grants and benevolence if you or your family are experiencing difficulties, e.g. debt, help with funeral arrangements, cost of mobility equipment, or other needs, and will endeavour to provide that help as quickly as possible. We also provide advice and guidance on War Pensions and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.

Employment - we work with vulnerable Royal Marine service leavers, veterans and spouses to support them into meaningful and rewarding employment through careers advice and guidance, sourcing of employment opportunities and funding for training, qualifications and equipment.

Mental Health – we work closely with the NHS to support Royal Marines veterans who present with mental distress. Individuals must have first engaged with their GP or NHS TILS veteran services. The charity can also gain access to funded, recognised and approved therapeutic support close to where the individual lives, when NHS waiting times or local resources may prohibit timely support.

Transition - we seek to support our wounded and injured personnel transitioning out of service, seeking to improve the quality of life for each and every Royal Marine. We continue this support for as long as it is needed.

Membership - whether you are just starting out, serving full-time or with the Reserves, preparing for civilian life or already there, belonging to the Royal Marines Association also keeps you at the very heart of the Royal Marines Family. We are the constant thread that runs right through your life, providing camaraderie, support, stability, and practical help.
