Info for Parents
Every parent's primary concern is for the safety and well-being of their son or daughter. Rest assured we take this equally seriously. Many of our activities (often outdoor) rely on our cadets being in a safe, secure and enjoyable environment in which they can sometimes be challenged physically. Our long history is a testament to our expertise and care in this area so that we can provide the thrills of adventurous training under the guidance of experienced, trustworthy staff. The squadron staff are always available to speak to and will put your mind at rest regarding any concerns you may have!
And rest assured, volunteer staff at all levels are strictly checked through the Criminal Records Bureau, and receive internal security checks, before they can take sole charge or responsible leadership of cadets.
