Find out about the
CIVILIAN WELFARE COMMITTEE
in the Air Training Corps
____________________

The Air Training Corps is structured in such a way that as well as the military influence there is an allied civilian structure. In fact the Civilian Committees are the backbone of the Corps and determine the running of the ATC from Squadron level through to representation on the Air Defence Council.

Each ATC Squadron has a Civilian Committee. These comprise of parents and friends of the Squadron. Their role is to ensure the Squadron maintains direction, assisting the Commanding Officer and raising funds.

Fund raising is very important as although each Squadron is allocated a small sum towards its administration costs all other expenses must not be paid for from public money and therefore has to be paid for by the Squadron itself. Other than Flying, Gliding and Shooting and some sporting activities all other activities are funded through fund raising.

Many parents and friends get a great deal of enjoyment, pleasure and fun out of assisting 'their' Squadrons as members of the Civilian Committee. The Committee of 2187 Squadron meet usually once every 4-6 weeks, under the direction of the Chairman with a Secretary, Treasurer and other Members.

If you can offer your assistance, we would be pleased to hear from you!

WE ARE RECUITING NOW! If the above interests you, and you are 20+, fancy a challenge and would like to be involved as a staff member with 2187 Squadron and make a difference to the young people of our community, please email the Commanding Officer or visit us at our HQ - our details are shown on the right.
