Purpose

  • We help members keep in touch with one another by organising social gatherings. This is mostly done within the branches which are located countrywide. Members who do not live near a branch may be a member of Headquarter Roll and are eligible for the benefits enjoyed by regional branch members.
  • The Association Gazette is published twice a year to which members may contribute articles of interest. Serving members are especially encouraged to submit items on current activities in the Corps. It also is also a means for bringing old and new friends together.
  • We remember older members with a card and flowers on their birthdays in appreciation of their service, commitment and friendship.
  • We support serving members on operations and also give grants for adventure training and sporting activities. Prizes are awarded from Association funds for serving personnel who have excelled professionally.
  • All members contribute to the Association's funds and fundraising within the branches is encouraged.
  • The Association receives requests for financial assistance for serving and retired QARANC members per year. Grants given depending on need. More detail can be found on our Benevolence page.
  • The Association maintains and supports the ethos and traditions of the Corps and assists in raising the Corps' profile.
  • The General Secretary at headquarters is available to offer advice as and when required. Contact details can be found on our Contact page.
