Active SupportScout Active Support provides a new way for adults to volunteer for The Scout Association in a flexible way. Scout Active Support can do anything that supports Scouting. Below are a few examples:

Programme delivery to young people: A District Scout Active Support Unit could be a source of extra adult help in Leader absence. Or they could teach skills that the existing Leader team do not have, such as pioneering.

The County Scout Active Support Unit could provide support to Explorer Scouts or the Scout Network when planning international expeditions. This could include fundraising.Active Support

Development of Scouting: A Group Scout Active Support Unit could provide Training Advisers to all Leaders in the Scout Group. This could include delivering Module 1, Essential Information, to all new adults supporting the Group including parents.

A District Scout Active Support Unit could provide catering at District events during the year. This could include District Sectional Camps, District Meetings and the District AGM.
