Important Notice

After a review of the National situation all three cadet Service groups have agreed to suspension of all ADF Cadet face-to-face activities, including any International activities, until further notice. The cancelation includes all school based Units activity, conducted internal to the school as part of normal curriculum. However, special program cadet unit activities endorsed by Service Chiefs may continue.

Adult Volunteers within the cadet organisations, where National, State and Territory COVID-19 restrictions allow, can continue undertaking activities such as adult leader development courses and planning. We will continually review our position on Adult Volunteers and reconsider as required by any changes in National responses to COVID-19.
