Welcome! Join us for a better future
The Basingstoke Sea Cadets are a local charity operating with the support of the National Sea Cadet charity. We are a growing unit, with many new recruits recently joining our fantastic group of young people aged 10 to 17 years.
We aim to give young people a fun experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities, cadets are able to gain nationally recognised qualifications and learn teamwork skills, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline and honesty. Watching cadets grow into the best version of themselves is what makes volunteering for this charity so special.
We are a friendly unit run by adult volunteers of all ages. We are always looking for other enthusiastic volunteers to join our team. You don’t need to have a navy background or previous experience, as all training, equipment and uniform is provided. Whether it’s just lending a helping hand or becoming a trained instructor, your help is always welcome!
We are currently hoping to find volunteers who can help us with a wide variety of tasks. Our Training Officer would appreciate some assistance inputting data regarding cadet attendance, boating hours and qualifications, creating kit lists and producing letters and receipts. Other instructors would love to hear from anyone able to offer cadet support, supervision and mentoring. We also require support at our local community events, help with running our tuck shop, maintaining unit kit and uniforms and assistance with fundraising and grant applications.
We would also love to hear from anyone who could help us provide practical training in the areas of sailing, rowing, power boating, kayaking, catering, first aid, campcraft, adventure training or the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
If you feel you are able to provide even a few hours of help on an infrequent basis, please contact us for an informal chat.
