Sea Cadets is proud to have been a finalist at the Children and Young People Now Awards in the National Citizen Service category.
The event celebrates best practice in the children's sector, and Sea Cadets was shortlisted for its NCS pilot, which ran last autumn.
Last night's ceremony took place at the Lancaster London and was hosted by children's TV presenter Anna Williamson, who is also an ambassador for Childline, Mind and The Prince's Trust.
Twenty-three winners received awards at the glitzy event, in what was an evening of celebration. The National Citizen Service Award, sponsored by the NCS Trust, was won by Ingeus: Nottinghamshire NCS Regional Youth Board – congratulations to them, and all the other finalists.
Sea Cadets is running NCS again this year in London, Southern, North West, Eastern and South West areas. Cadets are currently preparing for Phase Three, which is a social action project.
