The REME Benevolent Fund

Introduction

The REME Charity exists to help the whole REME family, on the day you joined REME you became a member of the family and you will remain a member for the rest of your life.

We seek to support all members of REME and their families as best we can, whether you are regular, reserve or retired.  The REME Charity commits at least one third of their annual budget to aid in the benevolence of the REME family.  Further information can be found on this page, if you wish for any additional information please contact us.

About

The REME Charity is a grant giving charity and we are dedicated to committing at least a third of our annual budget to the benevolence of the REME family. We all hope that members of our family won’t suffer hardship, however, hardship can hit us all.

The REME Charity’s objectives are varied and wide ranging.  If you find yourself in hardship please contact SSAFA or the Royal British Legion who will begin processing your case.  If you wish to talk to someone in The REME Charity please contact us and we will be happy to help.
