The Air Cadet Association (ACA) was born out of the former embryo charity Air Cadet Connect (ACC).
ACC was set up by a small group of like- minded people who saw a need for a charity that would support the RAFAC but be completely independent of it.
Over time the original aims of ACC evolved and a clear need was been identified for an organisation that could offer welfare support at times of hardship for present and past members of the RAFAC on a case by case basis.
The ACA has a Board of Trustees who oversee Governance and number of sub committees with particular responsibilities. The Welfare sub-committee handlez all requests for welfare support based on a set of agreed criteria.
We are working to establish 6 Branches based on the RAFAC Region structure, and with the ultimate goal of having Wing level Branches, if the requirement exists.
All appointments are laid out in accordance with the ACA Constitution .
