The Reserve Forces Review 2030 was conducted by a small team led by the former Minister for the Armed Forces, Brigadier The Rt Hon the Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton TD PC. The report followed 10 months of research and engagement and produced 18 recommendations on how Defence could build on earlier work achieved under the £1.85bn Future Reserves 2020 programme.

Reserve Forces 2030 (RF30) is a capability driven programme that has created 14 workstreams from the RF30 Review's recommendations. It is designed to help inform wider work to establish the UK’s future defence and security requirements, taking account of the increasing need to meet emerging risks and threats. It sits alongside the Integrated Review and the Integrated Operating Concept 2025.

The RF30 programme maintains its focus in four key areas:

1.Re-defining the Reserves’ relationship with society, recognising the need to cooperate and share expertise with key partners including industry, academia and the NHS.

2. Expanding the role of the Reserves as part of an integrated joint force, helping deliver active’ tasks - such as homeland resilience and defence diplomacy - whilst preserving and enhancing their assured capability to meet ‘contingent’ tasks such as war fighting.

3. Ways to unlock the full potential of the Reserve component of the UK’s armed forces, such as simplifying commitment types and better utilising the civilian skills, experience and diversity that Reservists can provide as part of the Whole Force.

4. Transforming how the Reserves are supported to deliver their mission, recognising the unique needs of the force and with a strong emphasis on digital enablement.
