The Royal Navy and RNRMC have extended their rewards and recognition breaks scheme for 2023. Some informoation about the project is below; however all details can be found in RNTM 09-27/22.
Eligibility. The opportunity to apply for the award is open to all ranks and rates, regular, reservist personnel and families, within the Royal Navy. Its aim is to recognise not only the Service Person but also their families for the extraordinary sacrifices and support they provide whilst their spouses/partners and loved ones are deployed around the globe. In addition, under this award it aims to recognise families that may have gone or are going through difficult times and where time away may help. Families awarded a Parkdean Break, may, if it is felt appropriate enjoy the break with or without the recipient, if deployment means they cannot go, and perhaps invite another family member (i.e. Grandparents) or friend to join them.
Due to the way the awards are given, travel to and from the areas cannot be met by public funds or by the company providing the break. For a trial period, so we can monitor its success and expenditure, the RNRMC have agreed to support a family up to a maximum of £100 for travel costs only. Mileage can be claimed at 25p a mile from home address to selected break location. If train fares are purchased receipts will be required. Claiming travel will be through the RNRMC who will send out an email to the family on completion of their break. A condition of releasing the funds is that a feedback questionnaire is completed at the time of applying for reimbursement of travel costs
It is also the reward recipient’s responsibility to book the appropriate travel insurance for the break. Once the holiday is selected and booked; it is non transferrable.
1. Award Criteria. The award will be in the form of either:
a. 7 or 3 day break at one of 19 resort locations made available by Parkdean
