We're in this together

As a family, getting on with ordinary life when your loved one is away is always hard. Belonging to the Royal Marines Association makes it a bit easier. You can be in regular touch with other families going through the same thing, giving you a ready-made support network to help with things like child care and lift-sharing to days (and nights) out and other social events. Plus, you can rest easy knowing we're ready to offer advice, help and support. As a member you can benefit from:

Camaraderie Wide


Drop in at one of the local branches, or attend one of our events, and you can meet up with old friends – and make new ones.

Connections Wide

Stability and Connections

Life in the Royal Marines is nomadic - and where they go, we know the families often follow. With nationwide branches, the Royal Marines Association is a constant presence with a network of connections and knowledge of the local area.


Practical Support and Peace of Mind

Help and advice with everything from pensions and healthcare to coping with bereavement and post-traumatic stress disorder - or just making sure you're not alone. The support you need, whenever you need it.
