The Ashington Sea Cadet Unit is based on the banks of the River Wansbeck. The Center works with young people between the ages of 10 and 18 years. The area is affected by high unemployment and a higher than average level of young people who are not in education, training or employment.

VIY activity at the club

VIY will enable the center to combine improvements on the building with the opportunity for the young people to gain employability skills and experience as well as a qualifications and hopefully a pathway to further opportunities and training. They also work in partnership with other local youth organisations who could benefit from the opportunities available.
