Individual police forces provide funding for the day-to-day running of volunteer police cadet units in their force areas from their own budgets.
In August 2016, the Home Office awarded £1.8m from the Police Innovation Fund to Devon and Cornwall Police to enable the National Volunteer Police Cadet Programme team to develop a digital platform and establish a regional training network for volunteer police cadet units.

Since 2010, the National Volunteer Police Cadet Programme has also benefitted from Cabinet Office and Department for Communities and Local Government grants to the Youth United Foundation, a charity supporting uniformed youth groups including the volunteer police cadets.
