The Reserves Continuous Attitude Survey (ResCAS) 2019 is now open


Reservists have until Monday 18 March 2019 to complete the survey

Why should you complete ResCAS?

​The results of the survey are used to understand how Reservists feel about their experience and to help shape the policies that support and enable Reserve Service. For example, the results are used by Future Force 2020 and Future Reserve 2020 programmes.

By completing this survey, you are helping MOD to understand how you feel about your Service and identifying the areas where changes could be made to assist you. The more Reservists who complete the survey, the more evidence is available to shape your terms and conditions of service and polices affecting training and development. Recent changes to Reserve support include:

  • The introduction of the “VR” post-nominal which can be used by volunteer reservists who have completed 10 years’ continuous service in the Reserves since 1999.
  • Improved access to welfare services for the families of Reservists. The policy and guidance for welfare services has been revised to reflect the particular needs of Reservists and their families and provide support equivalent to that provided for regular Service personnel.
  • The investment of £1.8 billion over ten years to improve access to kit and training, focusing on integrating the Reserves as part of the whole force concept.

So, if you want to help shape your Service, complete the survey today!

The survey may be completed by current serving volunteer Reservists and RAF regular Reservists.
