The Royal Engineers Association shares a common goal; service not self. It is committed to providing its membership with help and support no matter what shape it takes. Even if someone wants a chat, they are there.

Beyond providing assistance, members are able to join their local or national branch, taking part in activities and meeting like-minded individuals.

Membership also allows ease of access to veteran's weekends as well as other events held throughout the year.
