It was established in 1856 and operates through 400 local units in communities across the UK. Bollington and Macclesfield Sea Cadets is one of those units. The charity is run by the parent organisation, MSSC (Marine Society and Sea Cadets) which aims to be the leading maritime charity for youth development and lifelong learning. It is part funded by the Royal Navy, whose customs and traditions remain at the heart of what Sea Cadets do. We also enjoy strong associations and support from the commercial maritime sector. This enable us to shine a light on a huge range of career opportunities for young people. Our main aim is to inspire young people, to boost their confidence to give them that great head start in life with a range of skills that will benefit them regardless of the career path they choose. The charity aims to to have a positive impact on the life chances of young people, through the activities it offers and the sense of identity the Sea Cadets fosters. This includes: improving attendance and achievement in school, supporting post 16 destinations in employment and further education, enhancing long term well-being, contributing to a reduction of risky behaviours and increasing participation in communities.
