Our Unit is run entirely by volunteers. We need enthusiastic volunteers with a range of skills, from those who want to help train cadets to those who can apply their business skills to help run the Management Team that supports our Unit.

Sea Cadet volunteers:

  • – Support young people
  • – Encourage them to take part in challanging and aspirational activities
  • – Invest in the local community as part of a widely respected charity
  • – Get a sense of personal achievement from involvement with a national youth charity
  • – Work as part of a team
  • – Meet new people, make new friends
  • – Experience adventure and learn new skills
  • – Gain valuable and externally recognised qualifications


The Sea Cadets are always looking for committed adult volunteers to help young people to responsible adulthood. We have roles available maintaining the grounds and equipment. If you have some spare time and feel able to assist the Sea Cadets please contact the Commanding Officer, please note there is a requirement to undertake a CRB check prior to having direct contact with young people.

Unit Assistant

Unit Management Team (UMC)

Each Sea Cadet Unit is an independent charity and members of the UMC are the trustees of the Unit charity.

All volunteers, irrespective of their role undergo a criminal records disclosure check (CRB) when they join the charity.


The Unit Management Committee (UMC) is the civilian section of the Unit. It takes care of the financial, legal and day-to-day running of things. The UMC is responsible for buildings, insurance, maintenance, public relations and the recruitment of staff and cadets. The UMC has very little direct contact with the cadets but often helps out wherever possible. The Chairman of the UMC is responsible for the Unit as a whole.

The UMC hold regular meetings, normally every month. An annual general meeting is held once a year. ALL parents and friends are particularly asked to attend this meeting.
