Created in 2019, the Engagement and Outreach Committee advises the Executive Board. Chaired by Dr David Caddick, it draws on HRFCA members from a range of backgrounds including public and private sector organisations.
The aims of the committee include increasing diversity within the HRFCA membership and Area Committees, assisting the Single Services and Cadet organisations in achieving their diversity and inclusion objectives, and gaining a deeper understanding of those affected by disability, disadvantage and social exclusion in our communities.
By reaching out to and engaging with under-represented groups, we hope to build new partnerships and achieve an Association whose diversity better reflects the society from which it draws its support.
The Committee members are: Dr David Caddick, Lt-Col Gilly Moncur, Michelle McKearnon, Glenda Gray, Kismet Hossain-Ibrahim, Angus Ross and Graham Struthers.
