ACCT UK has a number of branches across the UK to ensure Army Cadets are supported at a local level according to their individual needs and requirements.


ACCT Scotland can trace its origins back to 1944, when it was set-up as a sub-committee of the British National Cadet Association.  Since that time, and in its previous existence as the Army Cadet Force Association (Scotland), it has helped and assisted countless cadets and volunteers, as well as forming a very close working relationship with the two RFCAs in Scotland and with 51Infantry Brigade.

In addition to supporting the work of ACCT UK, ACCT Scotland:

  • Supports the work of the Scottish Regional Cadet Advisers.
  • Organises and funds a series of Scottish sports championships which brings together cadets from all eight Scottish battalions and enables Scottish teams to be selected for the UK championships.
  • Sponsors an annual Scottish cadet first aid competition, organises two annual regional shooting competitions and purchases the medals and trophies for the annual Brigade cadet drill, shooting and military skills competitions.
  • Funds and delivers a social media presence for the Army Cadets in Scotland, a monthly newsletter and the Army Cadets in Scotland Annual Review.
  • Provides grants to battalions as a contribution towards cadet activities that might not otherwise attract financial support.
  • Helps with funding for battalion battlefield tours in France and Belgium.
  • Delivers the annual Beating Retreat on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle which brings together some of the finest cadet musicians from Scotland and beyond to perform for an invited audience and members of the public.
  • Delivers the annual Inspirational Awards for cadets and Adult Volunteers.
