Since Keeping Watch began in 2013, there has been over $193, 000 used to grant Navy people some form of financial help. This is a figure we can all be proud of. It’s a reminder to each of us to care for one another on and off duty. Keeping Watch is regularly called upon to consider assistance to a wide range of people, each with a different story to tell.
From everyday living expenses following a family crisis to assistance with education or child care costs, every member who approaches Keeping Watch is treated with dignity and respect.
That’s the Navy way. Importantly, if you know someone in the Navy family who needs assistance, Keeping Watch may be able to help.
Keeping Watch remains vital to the well-being of all RAN members. It is important to know that help is at hand when one of our Navy family hits difficult times. Whether you are a serving member, a former member or a member of the public wanting to recognise the fine work our people do, I urge you to give to our cause.
Donations over $2 to Keeping Watch are tax deductible. Every cent is used wisely and greatly appreciated.
