Army Cadet Force

The Army Cadet Force is one of the biggest, most successful and longest established of the country’s youth organisations.

Developing a sense of community and citizenship – among both cadets and their adult instructors – is an important part of the AFC ethos, the ACF motto is 'to inspire to achieve'

With the accent on fun, exciting and adventurous opportunities, young people are encouraged to develop physically and mentally, improving self-confidence, teamwork, friendship and leadership.
