Our biggest supporter is the Royal Navy whose customs and traditions are at the heart of what we do.  Sea Cadet units are managed and run by committed volunteers.  The unit management team (UMT) are volunteers and act as the unit’s trustees, headed up by a unit chairperson, secretary and treasurer. The UMT is responsible for the running of the unit at a strategic and management level and we are looking to recruit a dynamic volunteers to support the unit organisation and management.
