The volunteer police cadets is one of the fastest growing uniformed youth organisations in the country.
Currently there are over 5,000 young Londoners aged between 10-19 years engaged in the programme which has units across every London borough.
We are currently recruiting adult leaders across all London boroughs to help our cadet co-ordinators to run the programme.
There is a role for everyone, from helping to run the weekly meetings; administration roles; helping out at policing events alongside the cadets and police officers; or helping to supervise outdoors activities together with qualified colleagues.
There may be opportunities to gain qualifications and training in skills such as outdoor leadership, sports leadership, presentation skills, safeguarding vulnerable people and restorative approaches.
Volunteering as an adult leader with the volunteer police cadets can be an inspiring and enriching experience as you help to develop and encourage young people to achieve things that they never believed possible, and you might even surprise yourself.
Important: This role involves working with young people (cadets) and does not involve operational duties on London's streets. Apply to be a special constable if you want to be a volunteer police officer (eg wear a police uniform and undertake operational duties on London's streets). Or see our community based volunteers section for other volunteering opportunities.
We regret we are not able to offer summer holiday/work experience/internship placements.
