ACF to benefit from investment in youth groups

2 February 2012

The Army Cadet Force will be one of the organisations that benefits from a £10 million investment into youth groups announced by the Department for Communities and Local Government and HRH The Prince of Wales.

The £10 million grant is being made to Youth United, a coalition of uniformed youth organisations that includes all three community-based cadet forces, the Scouts, Girlguiding UK and many more. Over the next 2½ years the funding will be used to train up 2,700 new adult volunteers and set up 400 new groups in order to show 10,000 more young people to benefit from the structured activities available through organisations like ours.

If you're 18 or over and are interested in doing something fun and constructive in your spare time, why not think about joining the Army Cadet Force as an adult volunteer? Find out more from our Volunteering section then fill out our simple online form and someone in your area will get in touch.
