VCC Response to COVID-19

Published on 24/03/2020

The health, safety and welfare of our cadets and adult volunteers is our primary concern and as such you will not be surprised to learn that we have suspended all face to face cadet activities and training whilst the Covid (Coronavirus) situation is ongoing.  We are supporting our people as best we can, and engaging with them through emails and social media.  Our cadets and staff are very much part of the VCC family and whilst we can’t conduct normal activities we will do our best to keep the organisation informed and connected during these challenging times.

We are working hard behind the scenes to re-plan our activities for later in the year, and remain committed to ensuring the cadet experience will return to normality as soon as possible.  For those recruits who were just about to ‘Pass Out’ we’ll get new dates arranged as soon as we can, and for new cadets and adult volunteers who were just about to join us we will reschedule induction evenings at the earliest opportunity.

In the meantime I send my best wishes to everyone and encourage you all to follow NHS guidance on staying safe and well.

I extend my thanks to everyone in the VCC, to our external stakeholders across the country, and to the many healthcare, emergency services and essential workers keeping us safe and supported right now.

We Will Be Back!
