OUR 2020/21 ANNUAL REVIEW
Despite withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Royal Marines remain deployed on duty serving the nation around the globe 365 days a year – whether on anti-piracy duties, protecting the nuclear deterrent, guarding embassies, or on Special Forces operations. The Royal Marines form 49% of UK Special Forces personnel and have won 211 national-level gallantry and meritorious service awards, including 25% of all gallantry awards made during the Afghan campaign.
We are the Royal Marines’ own Charity, and are uniquely placed to understand, respond and react, enabling Marines and their families to overcome their challenges, from life-changing injury or limiting illness, to mental disability, transition to civilian life and even poverty. We can target support to ensure no one is left behind.
