The Navy Cadet Force is a National Youth Organisation promoting adventurous activities for children 8-12 years of age, and young people 12-18 years of age. We operate an equal opportunities policy with regard to sex, religion, race and disability (within the bounds of safety).
Our Instructors are trained by the Navy Cadet Force and hold internal or nationally recognised qualifications for all activities undertaken. We operate to the highest safety standards.
We give the youth of the United Kingdom opportunities of realising their potential, instilling in them a sense of pride in themselves, their peers, and their organisation and community. We promote an understanding of personal ability and recognition of opportunity.
Our aims are:
To help young people fulfil their potential to become a responsible adult.
To allow the youth of today to participate in activities that enhance their knowledge and skills in an organised and disciplined environment.
Enable them to interact with their peers, participate in teamwork, competitions and learn leadership skils based on the traditions and training of the sea services.
To provide a syllabus and programme that is structured and designed to engage, challenge, educate and be fun.
The Navy Cadet Force is not a pre-service organisation for any military service, however, we do promote the historical, social and economic links that our Country has with the sea.
I promise to faithfully serve my God, the Queen and my Country through the Navy Cadet Force.
I promise to conduct myself with pride, respect and helping all in need.
