FILLING THE GAPS TO PROVIDE RELIEF FOR CDS AND THEIR DEPENDENTS FROM HARDSHIP RESULTING FROM INJURY OR HEALTH IMPACTS (PHYSICAL OR MENTAL) OF THEIR SERVICE OR TRAINING.
NCDT #1 is the original Trust which provides relief from hardship for CDs and their beneficiaries. While there are mechanisms for support through RAN and DVA, there are inevitably gaps due to timing or scope of support. NCDT #1 will provide financial support from funds raised to ensure hardship is mitigated in parallel with working with RANCDA to ensure that CD has access to all options that can assist in their specific circumstances.
FILLING THE GAPS TO PROVIDE PREVENTION AND RELIEF OF HARDSHIP FOR CDS AND THEIR DEPENDENTS.
NCDT #2 was established to provide support programs aimed at preventing CDs from getting into hardship. Initially, this includes providing professional career coaching to transitioning or recently transitioned CDs. The scope of support will grow as consultation with the CD community identifies other needs and the funds grow. Again, these activities complement the support services provided by RAN, ADTS and DVA. To enable broader sourcing as well as the use of funds, NCDT #2 has a corporate Trustee, the Navy Clearance Diver Foundation Limited. In practice, the Trustees of NCDT #1 and NCDT #2 are the same people to ensure the most effective and efficient use of the dual structure to ensure CDs receive the whole of life support to prevent and relieve hardship, where gaps arise in other support mechanisms.
