Support us

The Royal Alfred and the support we provide relies largely on the grants and donations we receive. Every year, the Society receives generous contributions from a range of organisations and individuals. Without this help, we simply could not deliver such high-quality care to those who have served their country and now need it most.

Lieutenant Commander Philip Wake OBE RD* MSc FNI RNR, Chairman of the Society, says: “Our residents have done their bit, now it’s your chance to do yours! Please support us in our mission to help those seafarers either down on their luck, in need of nursing care or accommodation, or just wishing to spend the evening of their lives in the company of others with seafaring backgrounds, by donating to help keep the Royal Alfred running.”
