What we do

The Army Cadet Force (ACF) has 41,000 cadets (aged 12-18) in over 1,600 locations in every corner of the United Kingdom, the ACF is one of the country's largest voluntary youth organisations. It is also one of the oldest tracing its history back to 1859.

We welcome boys and girls from the age of 12 (and in at least year eight at school), of all abilities and backgrounds, and through a broad range of exciting, challenging, educational and adventurous activities, help them develop physically, mentally and socially. Some of our activities have a military theme, others have more of a community focus.

Combining military and community activities in this way enables us to offer our 41,000 young people a unique blend of personal development opportunities, all designed to promote fun and friendship while also helping them to prepare for success in their chosen path in life, whatever that might turn out to be.
