Get involved

With the Royal Navy, you get out what you put in. And whether you want to provide support to your fellow Service people or simply meet likeminded individuals, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

Your community

The Royal Navy forum is an invaluable source of information, advice and support from your fellow Service people. 

You'll need to register for an account if you want to participate in the forum, although there is an RN FPS Information Support area which can be viewed without logging in. 

RN FPS Volunteer Programme

The Royal Navy Family and People Support (RN FPS) service hosts a vast range of activities and events for serving personnel and their families – but none of it would be possible without the hard work and dedication of volunteers.

If you want to give something back to your community, the RN FPS runs a full volunteer recruitment and induction programme for anyone who wishes to offer their time. You’ll receive full training and may even get the chance to pursue qualifications.

Whether you want to volunteer for a one-off event or a weekly class, there are plenty of ways to get involved. If you’d like to learn more about the RN FPS volunteer programme, follow the link below.


Naval Service Youth Forum

The Naval Service Youth Forum is the Naval wing of the Tri-Service Youth Forum (TSYF), which was set up to represent young people from Armed Forces Families. It’s designed to give young people the opportunity to voice the unique challenges they face and to have a say in shaping the services available to them.

The forum encourages Service children and young people to actively participate in decision-making about services in their local area. This in turn will empower them to make a positive contribution to their communities. Participants also get the chance to take part in the British Youth Council’s Youth Voice program.
The TSYF is made up of regional forums which represent Service children and young people through a National Youth Participation and Democracy model, supported by the British Youth Council and in partnership with local Youth Parliaments. To find out more about the Youth Forum, follow the link below.
