The Royal Naval Benevolent Trust – Supporting The RNBT Family

Men and women of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines serve their country, often at times of danger. Established in 1922, the RNBT helps non commissioned Sailors, Marines and their families (The RNBT Family) throughout their lives. Your donation will help us to help them.

RNBT gives help, in cases of need, to serving and former Royal Naval ratings and Royal Marines other ranks, which includes Reservists. We also help their partners, children and some others connected with them. Our beneficiaries are known collectively as The RNBT Family. Our vision is:
