FANY response to COVID-19

The FANY (PRVC) has been called to operational duty to help respond to the COVID-19 crisis. While all training is currently on hold, our volunteers remain on call 24/7 to support civil and military authorities, and are prepared for a number of roles in both sectors.

Most recently, this includes assisting the National Emergencies Trust (NET) Coronavirus Appeal. This is a new role for the Corps, which involves us providing appeal trackers and communications support.

The NET is an independent charity that collaborates with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money at the time of a domestic disaster. It was established in 2019, in response to the Charity Commission recommendation following the series of emergencies in 2017. This is its first appeal since it launched last year. Find out more about the NET appeal here.
