Are You Interested In Aviation?

Scarborough Air Cadets

Are you interested in aviation, learning new skills and making lifelong friends? Then Scarborough air cadets might be for you.
RAF Air cadets offers a wide range of activities for you to get involved in all year round, from gaining real world qualifications to flying a plane.
Within cadets you’ll have the opportunity to try activities rarely offered by other organisations. You could fly a plane or glider, use radio communications and even fire a rifle - all in one place!
If you’re in year 8 or above at school, come down to our first intake event of the year on Friday the 10th of may to see what we do and meet our cadets.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, contact the Officer Commanding James Raw at oc.739@rafac.mod.gov.uk or search Scarboroughaircadets.org.uk online for more details.

Support for Families with Youngsters who have SEN, Disabilities and Impairments

Yorkshire Coast Familes

Our current main activities are running family events which allow our families to access fun activities as a group. These have included trips to East Barnby Outdoor Center, Energi Trampoline Park in York, Beach Chalet Days, Sewerby Hall at Bridlington and picnics at Dalby Forest. These trips allow our members to meet and support other families, share the stress of a day out with children and access activities they may otherwise avoid due to the potential for disaster that days out may have on families with children with SEND.
