About the employer

MSSC was formed in 2004 and is the parent charity for the Sea Cadets and Marine Society.

The charity is made up of these two very old charities which merged in 2004. Both helped young people to achieve more and make a life for themselves, often in very difficult times. The charity’s outcomes framework gives a clear picture of the journey a young person or a seafarer goes on while with us. This helps to ensure we offer a consistent and conscious outcome for all our beneficiaries and that we always meet our long terms goals of making a positive, life enhancing difference.
