Throughout their 80-year history the RAF Air Cadets have been inspiring their members to go on to great things, whether that be as part of the Royal Air Force itself or further afield. The cadets have played a key role in helping the Fund to be there for the RAF Family, whether that’s raising money, supporting events or helping to raise awareness.
Did you take on our 80 Miles in 80 Days challenge this summer?

Supported by the Royal Air Force, the RAF Air Cadets is a volunteer youth organisation that manages both the Air Training Corps and RAF Sections of the Combined Cadet Force. With more than 50,000 cadets and adult volunteers, the organisation has inspired young people from all backgrounds to join the RAF
We are proud to offer an enhanced package of welfare support for the RAF Air Cadets, including members of the Combined Cadet Force. Support includes emotional wellbeing, counselling and bereavement support, as well as financial support if a member is killed, on or off duty. This also extends to staff cadets and uniformed volunteers.
Donations raised from the joint 80 Miles in 80 Days virtual fundraiser will be split between the RAF Benevolent Fund and the RAF Air Cadets General Purposes Fund.
