The excellence of our Royal Navy and Royal Marines is based on a hard won and world class reputation and the dedication of those who serve. This reflects the calibre of the young men and women who join, the quality of the training they receive and the connection of those who command and lead. Their duty, and the requirement to serve long periods away from home, often putting themselves in harm’s way to defend our country, protects the way of life we have grown accustomed to, and the values and freedoms we enjoy. The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity exists to ensure that these remarkable people – past and present, regular and reserve – and their families, always have someone to turn to.

I visited the Charity in 2015 to hear directly from its staff and volunteers about the breadth of its work and how the growing need for both the serving community and our veterans means that the Charity is increasingly reliant on its fundraising to ensure that it will be around to support the Naval Service for generations to come.

Whether you are a long-standing friend of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity or are receiving this report for the first time, I have no doubt that you will be struck by the enduring impact that is has on so many beneficiaries. As Patron I ask that you do whatever you can to ensure that the Charity is able to uphold its mission to support and value each and every member of the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines and their immediate families from cradle to grave.
