The Army Cadet Force and the Combined Cadet Force, are youth organisations which use the resources of the Services to provide girls and boys, with a wide range of activities.Through these activities, Cadets learn responsibility, self-confidence, resourcefulness and leadership, as well as an awareness of service to the wider community.

The Army Cadet Force (ACF) is a national voluntary youth organisation sponsored by, but not part of the British Army.

If you are between 12 and 18 years old, and want to expand your horizons, you will be welcomed into the ACF.
