Help Army Cadets across the country to do more by fundraising for The Army Cadet Charitable Trust UK.
The Army Cadet Charitable Trust UK is the official charity of the Army Cadet Force. There are many ways to get involved and support our work whilst achieving your personal or corporate goals at the same time!
ACCT UK needs your help to support the ACF to do more and better for the young people of the United Kingdom. The charity extends the capabilities of local ACF detachments by providing adult volunteers with funding for training and enabling a variety of activities to enhance the cadet experience through charitable grants. ACCT UK grants offer opportunities for young people to learn new skills, build confidence and develop friendships that inspire and empower them to achieve life their ambitions.
ACCT UK runs pathway events in areas or for groups where the benefits of uniformed cadet service are not seen or instinctively understood, but where the impact of joining would be significant. The pathway events give these young people a taste of what the ACF is all about and then signpost them towards signing up at their local detachment, providing a positive long-term impact on their lives.
Each year the charity supports more than 5,000 cadets and adult volunteers.
All funds raised for Army Cadets go back into supporting cadets and volunteers to develop and achieve within the Army Cadets Programme. Below are cost examples per unit or per person for some of the common activities, development courses and equipment purchases the charity funds.
