The Ministry of Defence will continue to fund and support the youth and cadet organisations in the UK. All cadet organisations are funded using the normal Ministry of Defence financial planning procedures, which take account of operational priorities, competing programmes and resources available. The Sea Cadets also receive other funds independent of the Ministry of Defence by virtue of their status as a registered charity.
