Organisation

A fundamental characteristic of the RNBT is that the majority of trustees and other volunteer members are serving and ex-serving RN ratings and RM other ranks. This dates back to principles established in 1916 when the Grand Fleet Fund, the forerunner of the RNBT, was founded by Admiral Lord Jellicoe.

From a small nucleus the RNBT has grown into a major naval charity which now spends over £4 million each year to help past and present sailors, Royal Marines and their dependants.
