Impact Report 2020

This report looks at the views of cadets, parents/carers, and volunteers to understand the impact of Sea Cadets, and help drive continuous improvement of the Sea Cadets Experience.

It draws from a mixture of the 2020 Sea Cadets survey, and findings from a series of wellbeing surveys conducted throughout 2020 and early 2021. These were used to keep track of the experiences of cadets and parents throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns.

It is based on a foundation of a series of surveys of cadets, parents/carers, and volunteers, designed and analysed by the think tank and consultancy New Philanthropy Capital (NPC), who have delivered the survey in prior years. This gives us a baseline to allow us to track change over time.

Alongside the impact of the overall experience, this report looks at representation from marginalised groups e.g. ethnic minorities and disabled people, as well as feedback on virtual Sea Cadets. Given the situation with Covid-19, the ability of Sea Cadets to adapt to changing circumstances whilst providing a positive impact for young people, was a particularly important aspect of the research.

Impact Report 2018

This year we published our first ever Impact Report 'Sea Cadets - A Review of the Evidence', co-written by James Noble and Sarah Denselow of New Philanthropy Capital. The report highlights how Sea Cadets can have a positive influence on young people and can equip and support them to attain their aspirations in life.

Building from our 2021 Vision and Strategy and the Outcomes Framework. We commissioned New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) to compile and analyse new and existing evidence on the effectiveness of the Sea Cadets’ approach and impact on young people and society.

The Impact Report will be instrumental in giving us a platform to work with the wider public, sponsors and agencies, which in turn can translate into greater engagement and financial support.

The report is available here.
