ACFA Hardship Relief Fund 2021

The Army Cadet Force Association established an ACFA Hardship Relief Fund in April 2020 in response to the first national COVID-19 lockdown.

The fund’s purpose was to provide immediate short-term assistance to those ACF uniformed or non-uniformed volunteers, irrespective of rank, who were in a position of financial hardship as a result of the lockdown.

The ACFA recognises that since then 2020 has continued to be a difficult year for many and that some ACF adult volunteers are still struggling financially as a result of COVID-19’s impact on the UK. The Trustees of the Association have therefore decided, in accordance with the Association’s charitable objectives, to establish a second ACFA Hardship Relief Fund.

The fund’s purpose is to help ACF uniformed or non-uniformed volunteers, irrespective of rank, get through this difficult time. We aim to aid you in continuing your volunteering once life is back on an even keel.
