Young Firefighters’ Association (YFA) and Fire Cadets
The YFA and Fire Cadets are uniformed cadet groups helping to develop life skills, aimed at young people aged 11 to 16 years old, based across the West Midlands.
Long-term branches tend to recruit young people at the age of 11 and work with them until they’re 16, when they either leave to chase their own dreams, or enrol as an instructor. The YFA also run shorter programmes, usually between 12 to 20 weeks, aimed at 11 to 18 year olds.
The Fire Cadets also form part of a national model in which 26 fire services across the country are working with young people.
