Supported through life

From the day you join the Royal Marines, you become a member of our family for life. That means we’re here to support you, no matter what.

Being a Royal Marine is a way of life and whilst that comes with a sense of pride and honour, we know that it sometimes comes with challenges too. Our mission is to provide support, advice and lifelong camaraderie for serving and retired Marines and their families.

Remember – seeking support isn’t a sign of weakness – it’s what cements our comradeship with one another. Whether you need a listening ear or financial support, RMA – The Royal Marines Charity is here to serve you just as you’ve served us.
