The South East Reserve Forces’ & Cadets’ Association

At Community Update we are delighted to recognise companies that go above and beyond. This is why we are pleased to present The South East Reserve Forces’ & Cadets’ Association (SERFCA) with our prestigious Commitment to Excellence Award. SERFCA is one of 13 RFCAs in the UK and offers support to the Reserve Forces and Cadets from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.

The association is located in Hampshire but also supports Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, the Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, East and West Sussex. The non-profit organisation prides itself on providing enduring, efficient and effective support to the Reserves and Cadets. This is achieved through recruiting, employer and infrastructure support and fostering and developing links within the Community.

The organisation supports 37,100 Regular Military Personnel, 3,580 Reservist Personnel, 21,000 Cadets, 400,000 Veterans and 4,000 Cadet Force Adult Volunteers. To achieve this, the association champions its primary principles. Firstly, the association values the Reserve service, promote the Cadet experience and support the community. In addition to this, the organisation raises awareness for ex-service personnel.

SERFCA Estates team is also responsible for the upkeep of 29 Army Reserve Centres, 7 Careers Offices, 7 University Officer Training Units, 264 Cadet Centres and 7 Cadet Training Centres. Many of these locations are visually stunning and are located across the South East.

The majority of the association is comprised of volunteers who are managed by the Lord-Lieutenant of each county, comprising of high-ranking military personnel, retired military officers, local councillors and enthusiastic locals with no military experience.

It is important to note that each year the Volunteer Cadet Corps, Combined Cadet Force, Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and Royal Air Force Air Cadets work to encourage thousands of Cadets and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers to gain useful qualifications, acquire life skills and develop a positive work ethic that is invaluable in the workforce.
