How does The Royal Marines Charity help Veterans?
The Royal Marines Charity (RMA) supports all serving and retired Royal Marines along with their dependents. Altogether, this makes about 125,000 people who can receive help from the charity.
The breadth of support that The Royal Marines Charity can offer is huge. From providing practical support to marines who are injured in combat, to ensuring that there is a pathway to stability in place to Veterans once they leave the Marines - the charity exists to be a real source of support to Marines.
The tagline of The Royal Marines Charity is Royal Marines and their families supported through life. This mantra rings true through all services offered by the RMA. Due to the unique nature of life in the Royal Marines, there are demands that are met by servicemen and women that take extreme tolls on their mental wellbeing.
The RMA understands these stresses and ensures that there is always the opportunity for mental health professionals to spend 1-on-1 time with Marines, Veterans and even their families. This holistic approach to mental health support is exemplary and serves to improve the lives of many servicemen, women, Veterans’ and their families.
