The Women's Royal Naval Service Benevolent Trust [WRNS BT] membership is open to any woman who served in the Women’s Royal Naval Service [WRNS] and transferred to the Royal Navy [RN] before 1 November 1993, or anyone who served in the WRNS since 3 September 1939.
The Trust dispenses £350k per annum to around 400 women who find themselves in some form of distress. The main areas of expenditure are regular annuity payments to those on a low income, medical aids such as special chairs and powered vehicles, house adaptations such as level access showers and ramps and funeral expenses.
We work mainly with volunteer caseworkers from either SSAFA – Forces Help or The Royal British Legion who visit applicants on our behalf.
The WRNS BT works with its sister organisation the Association of Wrens and other Service charities to ensure that all former members of the WRNS [approx. 60,000 women] realise that their Trust is still dispensing benevolence and assistance to its members.
If you would like to find out more about the work of the WRNS BT, please contact the Trust.
