with Cadets for Cadets

As the Army Cadet Force’s official charity, we exist to make life-changing opportunities accessible to
all young people.

Being a young person in 2024 is not easy. Teenagers are spending less time outdoors and are much less likely to have a strong family unit and community network compared to their parents’ generation. ACCT UK opens up opportunities for young people in the Army Cadet Force. Making them more resilient, more confident, more capable. So they can tackle life’s obstacles head-on!
