Dartford & Crayford Sea Cadets needs volunteers with practical business experience to help with the management of the unit.

Dartford & Crayford Sea Cadets has lots of roles to match your profession, such as helping manage finances and budgets, fundraising for the unit, organising events, writing press releases for local media, and building corporate relationships with local businesses.

The unit’s Officer in Charge, PPO (SCC) Kai Sargeson said: “We need adults to share their professional skills and experience in the Sea Cadet unit to help us thrive in the local community. You can help give the unit direction, identifying what it needs to make it an enjoyable experience for young people.

“We are an independent charity that relies on volunteers in the local community to help make a positive different to the lives of so many young people in your area.”

Volunteers are supported by a network of other volunteers and employees. As a new volunteer, you will receive an induction and will be given training and support to make you feel comfortable in your role. We are always there to provide ongoing help and support.

Dartford & Crayford is part of national charity Sea Cadets, which gives young people a new perspective. We broaden horizons and create possibilities. Working across the UK with 14,000 young people between 10 and 18, we help them see the world with confidence, gained through the challenge of nautical adventure and a Royal Navy ethos. Our aim is to help more young people to see the future that they want – and make that future happen.
