ACFA 2021 Rejuvenation Fund

The ACFA 2021 Rejuvenation Fund launched in January 2021 dedicated to supporting all ACF counties, battalions and sectors across the country in their reopening and return to face to face training once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Applications for the Fund closed on 31 March 2021 and are currently under review. We will be sharing further news on the Fund here soon.

ACFA Scotland Care First Initiative

On 4th December 2020 ACFA Scotland launched a pilot of a free and confidential counselling service for ACFA members in Scotland and their immediate families. This has been funded by ACFA Scotland, which has engaged a company called Care First to provide the service.

ACFA Scotland is running this as a trial and will assess the value of the programme after 12 months.
The trustees of ACFA UK support our Scottish colleagues in this endeavour and look forward to learning from their experience.

ACFA is conducting research into services it can roll out in the future, including options like Care First, while continuing to support cadets and adult volunteers through other initiatives.
