Reserve Forces & Cadets Association
Northern Ireland


The uniformed cadet organisations – Sea Cadets, Royal Marines Cadets, Army Cadets and Royal Air Force Air Cadets – help young people in Northern Ireland develop the qualities they need to become the next generation of responsible citizens.

Welcomed from all backgrounds and abilities, they learn to build self-confidence, teamwork, friendship and leadership through a range of exciting and adventurous activities.

Youngsters are also encouraged to develop a sense of community and to acquire vocational qualifications which will help them in school and working life.

At the heart of these community-based youth organisations are hundreds of male and female adult instructors – many of them former cadets – who give up their free time to provide leadership, training and administrative support, upholding the volunteer ethos which is at the heart of the cadet movement across the region.
