West Midland Reserve Forces & Cadets Assoc

Did you know that SP Services is a signed up corporate partner of the MOD's Armed Forces Covenant.

As part of our commitment to the Covenant and as we really do genuinely believe in social responsibility, we also operate a 'hardship fund' to help support CCF, Army, Sea & Air Force Cadets in the West Midlands region.

Although our own financial resources are of course limited, the financial support we provide can help with the cost of summer camps, trips away with their unit, training courses, and of course dressings and bandages for first aid training.

SP's Managing Director Steve Bray says "The MOD have been an important and loyal customer of ours for well over 25 years and we as a company firmly believe that business is very much a two way relationship. We are also very much committed to helping our youth gain skills that will help them develop as a person. The Cadet Forces, by giving these young men and women various life skills, practical skills and discipline etc will also have huge benefits to society as a whole, our local communities, their future employers including the MOD, as well as to the individual cadet themselves". 

Long before we signed up to the Armed Forces Covernant, we have always done our bit with local cadet groups in Telford, Shropshire. Since early 2014 we have been associated with 83 St Georges Squadron ATC where we sponsor the cost of one cadet every year. As well as our financial support, our quality manager Rob Smith now also attends meetings at St Georges as part of the adult leadership team. We have also supported Telford based 2379 Dawley Squadron ATC with some trauma dressings for their first aid training.

We are still finalising the details with West Midland RFCA as to how the hardship fund will be administered as we don't feel that it would be right for us to receive personal details about a particular family's financial hardship in order for us to fund that cadet. The Adult Instructors who run the various cadet units are in our opinion the people who know their cadets best and we are happy to receive requests via email from these instructors.
