CARING FOR ONE ANOTHER ON AND OFF DUTY
Established in 2013, Keeping Watch provides assistance to serving members of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) who are suffering financial hardship. Usually using non-refundable grants, the program helps families needing financial support for things such as essential living expenses during a crisis, medical treatment when not covered by insurances or Medicare and child care if the main care-taker is absent due to a crisis.
Keeping Watch was established through donations from former naval officers and is an arm of the Royal Australian Navy Relief Trust Fund, which provides welfare assistance to current and ex-serving members of the RAN and their families. Provision of funds relies on donations from the naval family and broader Australian community.
CEA Technologies is proud to support this very worthy organisation. To show your support you can make your donation at Make a Donation | Keeping Watch.

After another challenging year, requests for support across the ACT reached an all-time high in December 2021. Thanks to the generous support of CEA Technologies, hundreds of families and individuals across the territory were positively impacted through your generous donations. From a toy for a child who overwise wouldn’t have a gift under the tree, to a self-care pack for a single mother escaping domestic violence, to a gift voucher for a youth overcoming homelessness, the impact of these gift’s brought smiles and relief to many over the holiday period.
On behalf of the families that use our programs, thank you for the incredibly generous donation of gift vouchers from CEA Technologies.
The families staying in the House and accessing our Family Room over this holiday season will greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness and their Christmas has been brighter because of you.
