Although the Women’s Royal Naval Service was disbanded in 1993 there are approximately 45,000 women between their late thirties and nineties who served in the WRNS.

The Trusts job is to make sure they receive help when they are in need.

It could be for something as small as £200 towards a new cooker or £3,000 towards a household adaptation for a disabled applicant.

For those on very low incomes, it could mean a regular grant of £22 per week, which might not sound a great deal to you, but it does mean an awful lot to someone living on the minimum guaranteed state pension.

To do this costs roughly £300k – £350k each year and whilst the Trust receives some investment income, your donations, legacies and fundraising income means that we can continue to help those women who are in need — the fortunate helping the less fortunate.
