Find out more about the different ways CCFs have had a positive impact on others in their local area.
Although Combined Cadet Force contingents exist within schools, they also play an important role in the community. In many cases, CCFs will be the public face of the school at local events, such as summer fairs, county shows, mayoral engagements and Remembrance Day.
As well as being a positive representative of the school, we believe that CCFs can have a hugely positive impact on the local area, whether that's through volunteering, getting involved in conservation or taking part in civic events. There are lots of positive examples of CCFs engaging with their local community - if your CCF has a great story to share, we'd love to hear it.
There are also many opportunities for established CCFs to support the next generation of school-based cadet units, by working with the new schools joining the scheme as part of the Cadet Expansion Programme.
