It relies on Case Worker reports from the Royal British Legion or SSAFA which identify the scale of need. It then contributes to resolving the issues usually with support from organisations such as the Royal British Legion, Royal Naval Benevolent Trust, the Royal Navy Officers Charity, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children's Fund or other more specialised charities depending on the nature of the case - a process known as almonisation.
Support is provided with the absolute minimum of bureaucracy and budgets are delegated to key personnel thus obviating the need for multiple approvals in every case. In cases where other charities are unable to help, the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund will try to meet the need in its entirety from its own resources.
The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund also makes a death grant, currently £5K, to the next of kin of anyone who dies in service; as members of the naval service, Royal Marines are also entitled to £12K from the Naval Service Dependants Fund, part of the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity; both are paid within 48 hours of death and are designed to alleviate any immediate financial concerns that next of kin may have.
