Great move. We're really pleased you are interested in becoming an adult volunteer with the Army Cadets. Complete this form and we will let you know the best steps for you to take next.
Are you ready to join as a volunteer straight away?
Have you had prior experience of the Army Cadets or armed forces?
Are you currently serving in either the regular or reserve forces?
Serving members of the Regular Armed Forces aren’t eligible to volunteer with us but can help out as a Service Helpers with permission from their commanding officer.
Existing officers in the Reserve may also serve in the ACF with the permission of their current commanding officer. However, an individual must be commissioned in both OR non-commissioned in both (i.e. a Reserve officer can’t join in a non-commissioned role and a NCO in the Reserve can’t get commissioned in the ACF).
Please note that all volunteers wishing to join the ACF are subject to having security and disclosure checks carried out on them as part of our Safeguarding procedures (DBS in England and Wales, PVG in Scotland and AccessNI clearance in Northern Ireland).
