Join Our Team
Scout Active Support allows people to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader. It’s also a great way to share your knowledge and skills more widely. We currently use our Scout Active Support units to support County Events (such as LEGSJam and the Cubs100 Adventure Camp) as well as provide ideas and support for a quality programme in sections.

If you’re interested in learning more or joining a unit (we have lots, but we can easily advise you on which would be best), then contact John Greenwood via john.greenwood@eastlancashirescouts.org.uk

The Appointments Advisory Committee’s main function is to assist with the process of appointing adults in Scouting by advising on their suitability. It is important to remember that the committee is not a ‘rubber-stamping’ body. It must carry out its responsibilities with integrity and with the welfare of the Movement and its Members in mind. On the one hand, it has an important role in ensuring those who are unsuitable to work with young people or look after funds do not have access to either. On the other, it should not be a barrier to those who are genuinely interested in and suitable for taking on a role. Ultimately, the Appointments Advisory Committee exists to support the relevant commissioner, who has overall responsibility for Scouting in their locality.

 

 

If you’re interested in joining the County Appointments Sub-Committee, please contact Elizabeth Watts (County Secretary) via elizabeth.watts@eastlancashirescouts.org.uk
