Support Volunteer Training

RMA – The Royal Marines Charity Health & Wellbeing team recently held a two-day weekend course for 20 of our many wonderful Royal Marines Association Support Volunteers (RMASV) who had travelled from far and wide to attend.

Grateful thanks received

Our Health & Welfare team has received grateful feedback from a 65-year old beneficiary who lives in Eastbourne. He has recently received a terminal diagnosis of lung cancer with a prognosis of 5-7 months.

New outdoor space opens at CTCRM

The outdoor space sits next to ‘Jollies,’ a dining facility mainly used by Phase 1 and 2 recruits, and has been transformed thanks to a grant from the RNRMC, working in partnership with the RMA – The Royal Marines Charity and supported by additional funding from the Nuffield Trust and Rebalancing Lives fund.

David’s life-changing prosthetic

David Pither left the Royal Marines in 1987 and pursued a 26-year career in the Avon and Somerset Police. During the latter part of his time in the police, he started to suffer from several serious medical problems, including Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in his left leg. 

Royal Marines Support Network Officer Training

Hosted at the state-of-the-art Gordon Messenger Centre, the newly written workshop was co-delivered by Moor Mindful, who specialise in providing coaching and expert training to enhance understanding of mental health and wellbeing, alongside staff from the RMA. 

Mental Health Training Opportunities

Following the award of funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to continue to develop the ‘Lifting the Lid’ campaign, we launched last August we are now able to provide Mental Health (MH) training across staff, volunteers and RMA members.
