All three of the armed forces provide humanitarian aid where possible. Many hands on roles get involved from movers to chefs and pilots to doctors. The armed forces are a team and all directly play into delivering aid when needed.

I'd look through the news pages of the Navy if you're set on it and see where they are delivering aid and how. From that, you'll get a picture of how they help. Not only this, you will want to join a role that you are genuinely interested in.

Think of it like this, you won't be doing humanitarian work all the time in the navy (if at all, depends which ship you're drafted to etc...). When you're not conducting humanitarian relief efforts, what would you want to be doing? Your branch comes first, so make sure you pick one that you think you'd enjoy!

Which roles have caught your attention in particular?

You can apply from the age of 15 years and 9 months which, for you, will be a date in December, so I would suggest applying next month.

You will need to take the entrance test; ask about the possibility of taking it just before you go back to school in January or during half term, so that it doesn't clash with your GCSE revision.

Your test result will dictate which roles are offered to you.

Start looking at your fitness too, as you will need to complete a run as part of your application.
