Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Associations: Membership

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 27976, tabled on 11 March 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what information his Department holds on the skills available free of charge to the Reserve Forces and Cadets' Association through its active volunteer membership.

Answered on

18 March 2020

We greatly value the contribution of the Reserve Forces and Cadets' Association's volunteer membership in support of the Reserve Forces and the Cadet organisations. Their continued contribution of their own free time to support our Armed Forces and affiliated youth organisations is laudable, and we hold them in the highest regard.

We do not currently hold any information on the skills, qualifications or experience of volunteer members outside of the Armed Forces. We recognise that our volunteers bring a wealth of experience and different ways of working, whilst concurrently being a fully integrated and integral part of our tri-service community and youth organisations.
