During these difficult and uncertain times, we at RFCA NI take the health and wellbeing of our staff, visitors and stakeholders as our highest priority. As the world-wide coronavirus pandemic develops, we would like to assure you of the comprehensive steps we are taking in response, while protecting as many of our critical outputs as we reasonably can. 

As per the latest government advice, our staff will be meeting our basic commitments and only travelling to meetings were attendance is absolutely essential, all staff are adhering to keeping a safe social distance of two metres. The majority of our staff will be working from home.

Please contact us at  and we can direct your enquiry to the correct department.


In line with recent Government, NHS and Public Health Organisations’ direction on Covid-19, all Army (ACF) Sea Cadet and RAF Cadets face to face activities have ceased until further notice.  We will keep you up to date via our website and social media channels. All Pathways Activities planned have also ceased.


All engagement events for the foreseeable future have been postponed including two major annual events:

  • The Lord Lieutenants have postponed their Awards Ceremony on 28 March 2020

  • RFCA NI have postponed Annual General Meeting 16 April 2020

  • VE Celebrations across NI 8th -10th  May 2020


Regarding the mobilisation of Reservists, we will keep you up to date as necessary via our website and social media channels as we are advised by the MOD. Please see the following link: 

As ever, we really appreciate your continued support and we will continue to be here to aid the Cadets, Reserves and our wider stakeholders during these unprecedented times.

We continue to follow the Government’s Public Health advice and any further guidance issued by them in the coming days 

Thank You, Stay Indoors and Safe
