Welcome to the West Midland Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association

Our role is to support the Reserve Forces of the Army (Army Reserve), Navy (Royal Naval Reserve and Royal Marines Reserve), Air Force (RAF Reserves) and the Cadets within the West Midlands Region, encompassing the counties of Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire and the Metropolitan Boroughs of Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell, Birmingham, Solihull and Coventry.

This support is provided from our headquarters staff in Birmingham and from our volunteers spread throughout the region. We provide an essential representative link between the military forces and the local community, raising awareness of the benefits and skills gained through part-time military service, and assisting with recruiting. We also maintain the Reserve Forces and Cadets estate.

This site is not just about West Midland Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association; it’s about what it takes to be a volunteer in the Reserve Forces; the excitement to be had from joining one of the Cadet Forces or the satisfaction gained as an Adult Volunteer helping youngsters on the road to developing into well-rounded and responsible citizens. Here you will find links to the various Reserve Forces and Cadet organisations based in your communities, how you could become a volunteer, and where to find more information.
