What difference will you make?

The Rickmansworth & Watford Sea Cadets is a charity giving young people aged 10-18 the opportunity to build confidence, skills and resilience through experiences in a safe and friendly environment, helping them to grow into the person they want to be. As an independent charity, Rickmansworth & Watford Sea Cadets is run entirely by volunteers and is responsible for all its own costs (building maintenance, utilities, boat purchase and repairs, etc.). We do not receive any direct funding, instead relying on donations, fundraising activities and grants. We request cadets to pay a small subscription fee, but financial pressures should never prevent a young person from participating and having access to the opportunities and skills we can offer. Your input will ensure that our young people will continue to enjoy a safe and fun Sea Cadet experience, and build our profile within the local community.
