ACFA Hardship Relief Fund
The Army Cadet Force Association recognises that some ACF adult volunteers are struggling financially as a result of the UK wide COVID-19 lockdown. For some, financial hardship may act as a barrier to their return to ACF volunteer service when cadet training activity resumes.
In response the ACFA has established the ACFA Hardship Relief Fund to provide immediate short-term assistance to those ACF uniformed or non-uniformed volunteers, irrespective of rank, who are in a position of financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown.
They typically look to give grants in the £200 to £500 range, but will consider grants up to a maximum of £2,250.
The fund is open immediately and will consider applications three times over the next six weeks. Given the urgent nature of this support, the application deadlines will be:
0900hrs on Wednesday 29 April (Applications closed)
0900hrs on Wednesday 13 May
0900hrs on Wednesday 27 May
