The Combined Cadet Force Association’s Contingent Growth Fund was launched in 2022 in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence. The aim of the programme is to help new and existing CCF contingents to expand their cadet numbers in support of the Government’s ambition to increase the number of cadets in schools to 60,000 by 2024.
If you need funding to help grow your cadet and adult volunteer numbers, sustain your established contingent or to simply give more young people the chance to participate in an exhilarating cadet experience, then the grants programme will give you a perfect opportunity to achieve your goals.
Since the launch, 85 CCF contingents have been awarded grants with a combined total of more than £510,000.
In addition to the last round of 2022, the CCF Association have added three more rounds for 2023 with the following deadlines:
- 9am, Friday 25 November 2022
- 9am, Friday 10 February 2023
- 9am, Friday 5 May 2023
- 9am, Friday 23 June 2023
