ACCT UK’s Rejuvenation Fund has helped thousands of young army cadets to continue their individual cadet experience and return to training this Summer after COVID-19 restrictions lifted.
26 August 2021
ACF Counties across the UK welcomed back young Army Cadets with a range of return to training support to aid wellbeing, supported by ACCT UK. Initiatives included cadet welcome packs, cadet fitness equipment, Virtual Reality headsets to support cadet downtime, music training equipment and more.
Lancashire ACF, who were unable to restart training until June, used the Rejuvenation Fund to recreate the normal camp experience to the best of their ability over the Summer.
The Royal County of Berkshire ACF’s Rejuvenation Fund grant helped them to purchase much-needed canoe equipment as part of an adventure training package which includes a river trip in canoes on the River Wye. This helped reduce costs of the trip for cadets, as well as being able to use the boats for other adventure training weekends, annual camps and Duke of Edinburgh’s expeditions.
‘Adventure training and DofE is key to building the cadets confidence and self-reliance, as well as being fun.’
