Our exciting adventure activities aim to develop social skills and responsibility in young people, and re-connect them with their maritime heritage.

We want to help young people build confidence in their own abilities as they learn to work as part of a team. Our qualified instructors guide young cadets so that they can flourish in challenging environments safely.

Cadet safety

Sea Cadets takes the safety of young people very seriously and has clear guidelines which all our volunteers follow. As part of the recruitment process all volunteers and staff undergo a Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check before working with young people.

Risk assessments are carried out on all our activities and are operated and overseen by appropriately qualified instructors.

To ensure the safety and well being of the young people we support we work with CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) To find out more visit: CEOP.gov.uk

What does it cost?

Sea Cadets is inclusive and so we try to keep our costs as low as possible.
Unit donations help to cover the cost of running our Unit. From time to time there may be other non compulsory activities you may need to pay a contribution.

There are charges for some training courses and camps but these are kept to a minimum. Some activities like offshore sailing and expeditions can, in certain circumstances, be supported by bursaries or grants.

Equality and Diversity Policy

Sea Cadets is an inclusive organisation that helps young people to achieve their potential by offering a range of social and educational opportunities. We are committed to equality of opportunity for young people and adults alike. We recognise diversity within our membership and regard it as one of our greatest strengths.

Sea Cadets is open to all regardless of sex, religion, race, and ability, within the bounds of safety to themselves and others. We seek to ensure that there are no barriers for young people to have the opportunity to be a Sea Cadet.

Transferring to another Unit

If you are moving to another area you should be able to transfer to another Unit provided there is not a waiting list. The CO of your current Unit should be able to give you more information on this.
