Then it is important that they and you feel they will be in safe hands during they time away. Is your son or daughter thinking of joining the Royal Navy or the Royal Marines? Or are you thinking of considering this as a good career for your child and want to find out more? Then it is important that they and you feel they will be in safe hands during they time away. Is your son or daughter thinking of joining the Royal Navy or the Royal.

Joining the Royal Navy or Royal Marines could be the first time your child has spent a long time away from home and we take our responsibility for their welfare very seriously.

At the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, younger individuals are paired with old trainees to help them settle in, and a similar scheme operates on Royal Navy Ships where new recruits are looked after by an older mentor.

Chaplains play a key role in giving advice, offering support and counseling, if needed, to any recruit of any religion. Your son or daughter can speak to the Chaplain at any time in complete confidence.

Royal Navy - Ratings:

When your son or daughter joins HMS Raleigh for Phase 1 training, we will write to you at the end of the first week with details of their Divisional Officer. You are welcome to contact them at any time if you have any concerns. If your son or daughter goes on to attend the Maritime Warfare School at Collingwood, the Officer commanding the phase 2 training group will contact you by letter, introduce themselves to you, invite you to attend the passing-out parade and explain policies on things such as harassment and bully.

Royal Marines:

The Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, Lympstone, will contact you in week 1. You will also be invited to a families’ day in week 3.

Keeping them fit and healthy:

Training can be tough, and injuries do happen. Our priority is to get your son or daughter fit and well again as soon as possible, which is why we employ some of the best physiotherapists in the country. Stonehouse Division is a major rehabilitation centre for Royal Navy recruits who get injured during their Phase 1 training.

 Within The Royal Marines Hunter Company provides the best facilities to get them fit again and able to complete their training. It is staffed by Physical Training Instructors who have passed an eight-month course in sports science and physiotherapy as well as a fulltime chartered physiotherapist.
