Danny Egan joins the Staff as Director of Welfare

31/10/2018

We are delighted to announce that Danny Egan has now joined the Staff of RMA and The Royal Marines Charity in the new position of Director of Welfare.  In this new role, he will be accountable for the delivery of all welfare services for veterans and their families, and supporting the welfare needs of the serving Corps and their families.  Significantly, he will be drawing together welfare staff from both organisations into one team in order to begin unified delivery before legal merger. He will also be leading a review of the merged charity’s health and well being strategy, in order to ensure even better service and support.

This new role covers:

  • the recruiting, training and operations of the Royal Marines Support Network volunteers, currently numbering over 100
  • the coordination of the great work of the RMA Branch Welfare Officers
  • the delivery of welfare grants in conjunction with partner charities such as RNBT
  • the delivery of transition and employment support to our Wounded Injured and Sick, as well as to veterans and their families
  • the delivery of pro-active through-life support to those who have been medically discharged from the Royal Marines
  • the delivery of the Veterans Referral Programme for those members of the Corps Family suffering Mental Ill-Health
  • the delivery of case worker support to those members of the Corps Family needing assistance with War Pensions, Armed Forces Compensation Scheme claims and tribunals.

Danny served in the Royal Marines for 36 years, the last 17 of which were in the Royal Marines Welfare Specialisation as a qualified social worker.  As such, he is ideally qualified for his new role and we look forward to working with him in this most important function of both the RMA and The Royal Marines Charity.
