Joining the Army Cadet Force

Every year thousands of young people and adult volunteers join the Army Cadets for fun, friendship, action and adventure

For fun, friendship, action and adventure, join the Army Cadet Force

If you're over 12 (and in year eight at school) and under 18, you can join the Army Cadet Force.

Being over 18 doesn't mean missing out on all the excitement. Join as an adult volunteer and you can enjoy all the same activities while also picking up exactly the kind of teamwork and leadership skills that employers look for.

Just select a location from our interactive map opposite or enter your postcode or the name of your nearest town in the search box above to locate detachments in your area.
