Scout Active Support

Who are we?

Scout Active Support comprises adults who, in many cases, would like to be involved with Scouting but cannot make the commitment of being a leader. We support the District Commissioner and his team, the District Executive, and Scout Groups.

Who can join?

Parents, helpers, supporters, network members, existing and former leaders can join Active Support - all that you need is a willingness to volunteer some of your time.

What do we do?

Some of the activities in which we get involved are:

  • Support at large events (e.g. stewarding, car parking, BBQs, etc.)
  • Providing occasional temporary cover at group sectional meetings
  • Helping with the maintenance of the campsite at Invertrossachs
  • Assisting with the Gang Show
  • Skills training and badge work
  • Fund Raising

In addition to supporting scouting, we run some social activities to encompass the very important “fellowship” element of Scouting.

Individual scout groups can form their own Active Support Units to assist the group. Your group may already have one. Membership of this will automatically include membership of the District Scout Active Support Unit.
