The Task Group provides the deployable framework to deliver Information Activity and Outreach (IA&O) either independently, or in support of a composite force package.
We deliver professionalised Security Capacity Building (SCB) expertise.
We support wider MOD and Cross-HMG objectives with linkages to infrastructure and the military contribution of support to Governance in the context of a host nation’s security framework.
Our remit is to support the development of institutional capability and capacity of foreign security forces and their supporting institutions.
Personnel from the Outreach Group provide support to Defence Attaches and host nation upstream as a preventative lever. They augment the Tactical Engagement Teams in the Task Group to provide subject matter expertise and provide support post-conflict through early recovery, stability operations and longer-term institutional develop.

We are mainly Army Reservists with collect content capability and can deploy Combat Camera Teams (CCTs) and Communications Operations Officers to support Defence Strategy Communications and operational support.
We are able to support various operations, projects and functions with media related expertise.
