Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets) publishes letter on Reserve mobilisation

The Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets) has written to employers regarding the use of Reservists to support the national response to COVID-19.

The MOD are working hard to understand an evolving situation and the contribution that Government requires of Defence’s newly established COVID Support Force. It is now clear that Reserves will be a part of that contribution. At the moment, the intent is that only those Reservists with specific in-demand skills, are being approached for call-out.

Defence seeks to protect from call-out those reservists who are key workers or who are already involved in the response in their civilian roles.
