We are 100 this year Preston Sea Cadets is a voluntary uniformed youth charity organisation. We are part of the National Sea Cadet organisation with over 400 units and 10,000 members. Preston Sea Cadets provides young people aged 10 - 18 years (13 to 18 years for Royal Marine Cadets) with valuable academic and vocational training in a number of subjects including the life skills of teamwork, self-respect and social responsibility - the core qualities of good citizenship. TS GALLOWAY provides these educational and training opportunities right in the heart of the community. Preston Sea Cadet Unit Headquarters was originally a hospital in the First World War (1914). At that time it was situated on Moor Park and was one of several buildings of a similar construction. As far as is known this is the only one left. 1920 Preston Sea Cadet Unit moved to another location in Preston before it arrived on its present site on Strand Road, Preston. PR1 8DT. The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters. The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets. We work partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. Our core purpose is to celebrate Britain's maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people as Sea Cadets.
