The ACF is a national youth movement which is sponsored by the British army. We take both boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Our activities cover military subjects, sport and adventurous training. We are a partner organisation to the Duke of Edinburgh award and run BTEC courses for our cadets.
