Welcome to The REME Charity

The REME Charity provides financial assistance to past and present members of the Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and their dependants.  It also supports a wide variety of activities that enable service personnel to face the challenges and dangers associated with military service by developing and maintaining teamwork, skills, fitness, confidence, character, spirit and morale.

No matter if you are serving or retired, regular or reserve you are part of The REME Family.

What are our objectives

The Charity has three key objectives which it must meet:

  1. To promote the efficiency of REME and to foster its esprit de corps.
  2. To relieve either generally or individual necessitous persons being members or former members of REME or their dependants (Beneficiaries).
  3. To support charitable purposes for the benefit of Beneficiaries.

What does that mean?

The objectives of the charity are broad and wide ranging; this allows us to support a wide range of activities. In simple terms the charity supports the following:

  • It provides grants to past and present members of the Corps who are in need.
  • It provides direct support through grants to Corps and unit activities
  • It funds the REME Sports Association and REME Adventurous Training.
  • It funds REME Publications, including The Craftsman Magazine, The Calendar, The Journal and The Officers List.
  • It also provides some support for the REME Museum (registered charity 272740), the REME Band and the Corps Sergeants’ Mess amongst other things
