Leicestershire Northamptonshire and Rutland Army Cadets

Join us and let over 1200 cadets and 400 adults be part of your adventure. We offer fun, friendship, civilian and military qualifications. Where will your adventure take you?

Being part of our adventure will allow you to do something different, push your boundaries and go places you never thought you would go.

We are one of the leading youth organisations in the UK and our ethos is to develop cadets into well rounded citizens that will go out and be a major player in their community.

There is no commitment to join the Army just a commitment to have fun! We use military skills, adventurous training and civilian qualifications which include workplace recognised leadership qualifications to assist our cadets in their life goals. There is the set syllabus that all cadets follow, then a large number of areas a cadet can either specialise in or just go and try it out. Many specialist subjects give the ability to gain a civilian recognised qualification.

Our news stories show you the tip of the iceberg of what we do in LNR.

Adult Volunteers are a very important part in the cadets life, each adult is given a basic training package to enable them to parade at a detachment. They are also given an opportunity to specialise from a range of subjects. Once our adults are that expert they can pass their knowledge on. Subjects range from digital communications to skiing and playing a musical instrument to target rifle shooting.


Join Today!
