The Civil Aid Volunteer Corps
What We Do

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website.  We are a Charity dedicated to supporting our communities by providing a trained and disciplined Civil Aid organisation.  What that means is that we will train in emergency techniques such as search and rescue, and first aid.  But that is just the tip of the iceberg.

We have taken our model from the original Civil Defence Corps (CDC) who provided support to communities all over the UK from 1935 to 1968 when the Government of the time stood the Corps down.  It worked with the emergency services throughout the Second World War and was trained to provide disaster support during the early years of the Cold War.

A part of our commitment is to build disciplined Civil Aid units capable of providing the same level of support but to a modern day society with continuously emerging difficulties and to emergency services that are always facing budgetary cutbacks and stricter financial controls.

One of the key recommendations of the UN’s International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG) is that effective Civil Aid units should be able to operate independently allowing the professional services to undertake the more complex roles suited to their expertise.

So by taking the basic structure of the CDC from the 1960’s and modernising it to suite the current times, the Joint Civil Aid Corps presents an organisation suited for all – young and mature, with roles to suit. See your opportunities.
