Are you in The RNBT Family?

We will consider applications for assistance from any member of The RNBT Family. If you fit one of the following descriptions then, apart from a few exceptions, you are almost certainly part of The RNBT Family:

  • Serving and ex-serving men and women: past or present RN rating or RM other rank, including Reservists - a Primary Beneficiary.
  • Wives, husbands and partners: dependent partner of a Primary Beneficiary with whom you live.
  • Children: under the age of 18, of a Primary Beneficiary, living or deceased. This may include:
    • a dependent child who is not the natural child of a Primary Beneficiary;
    • a child who has continued in full-time education on reaching the age of 18;
    • a child over the age of 18 but unable to support themselves because of mental or physical disability.
  • Widows and widowers of a deceased Primary Beneficiary, with whom you were living at the time of death, and not living with a new partner.

This is not an exhaustive list and individual circumstances can be complicated. If you have any doubts or queries, we are always ready to listen and tell you whether or not you are eligible.

How we raise funds

We obtain funding from several sources, but the main income comes from support from other charitable organisations, donation by individuals, income from legacies and from investments.
