Participation Fund

A small amount of money is set aside for when any members or members’ families are experiencing financial challenges.
The aim of the fund is to help ensure that no Young People, whose families are suffering financial challenges, lose out from Scouting activities. It is intended to enable Young People in a situation where funds are tight.
The fund is explicitly to cover challenges in paying for Scouting equipment or activities, for example, it might be used for:

  • One-off uniform purchase/contribution.
  • Allow the Young person to attend a particular event.
  • A small reduction in subscription payments for a period

In return you might be asked to volunteer some of your time to assist the Group with fundraising activities.
If any Group members (or their parents on their behalf) would like to access the fund, please contact the Executive Committee or speak in confidence to your section leader.
