The Navy Clearance Diver Trust (NCDT) is a perpetual not-for-profit trust fund that aims to provide relief to current and former members of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Clearance Diving Branch and their dependants, who become deceased, damaged or permanently disabled in, or as a result of, their service or training.


RAN Clearance Divers routinely work in an inhospitable environment, undertaking varied tasks including explosive ordnance disposal, counter terrorist duties and high risk ship boarding’s. The risk to Clearance Divers being killed, badly injured and/or made permanently medically unfit to dive, in the course of their work is high. Sadly, like others in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), Clearance Divers are not well compensated through workers’ compensation schemes, or other industry based funds, and cannot access legal chains to remedy this. The NCDT aims to address this.
