Community Engagement

One of our core functions is to maintain an active engagement with the wider community to inform it of the activities undertaken, and the contribution made, by the Reserve Forces and the Service Cadet organisations in our region.   We achieve this through our support and publicity of events that bring the military into contact with the civilian population. 

The Association is not part of the military chain of command but through our Volunteer Membership of experienced, professional and highly motivated people, who have an interest in Defence, we are able to engage fully with the continuously developing and diverse communities that form the Association's region:  we can promote, network, and create an understanding and endorsement of the value and role of the Armed Forces and, conversely, inform the chains of command of the needs and value of the community.
