About Our County

Welcome to Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Army Cadet Force

The ACF helps young people between the ages of 12 (and in year 8 at school) and 18, to develop personally and physically by providing a range of exciting and stimulating opportunities, challenges and activities in a safe and controlled, yet action packed learning environment. Our young people are encouraged to fully explore their potential and see where the boundaries lie whilst being carefully supervised by appropriately trained adult instructors.

We are part of the UK's oldest, largest and most successful youth organisations and our County ACF consists of approximately 1250 cadets based in 45 local detachments across the three Counties.  These detachments are divided into six Companies and you can found out more about each of them by selecting from the links on the left of this page.
