Safeguarding, Safety + Safe Scouting
Young people thrive in safe surroundings. We’re committed to ensuring that Scouting is both enjoyable and safe for everyone who takes part, along with providing parents with peace of mind. Please read the Scout Association’s Safeguarding + Safety Policies on how we safeguard the welfare of all members. All volunteers who help to run our activities give their time freely to help young people enjoy Scouting.
We also have Safe Scouting Cards for all Adults Volunteers to follow
Adult Roles in our Scout Group
Ever wondered about the Set up in Scouting ?, This is detailed information on role descriptions for the adults within our Scout Group that can be found via this Link
Please note we don’t have a Squirrel Section in our Scout Group, We would basically need to have at least 3 new Adults continently running this Section for it to start up. Suggested (Subject to availability) meeting day would be a Thursday from Approx 5.30pm to 6.30pm
Our Priority and focus is to currently ensure that the 3 Sections in our Scout Group have enough adults to provide Scouting Activities
Our Scout Group is a Registered Charity which needs income to support the running costs. Below briefly outlines what these are.
Income: The main Sources of Income within our Scout Group come for Term Fees, Gift Aid and the Scout Christmas Post Fundraising.
How much do Term Fee’s cost - Before your child’s investiture we ask for a one time £10 Membership Fee. You will then need to purchase a Uniform locally from Melton Sports. Afterwards (Currently under review) we collect Term Fees which can be £10 Monthly Instalments, x2 £20 Half Termly or one £40 Full Payment to whichever suits yourself. Important Please read the current above information Letter regarding Term Fees.
Outgoings: The big cost is the Yearly National, Regional, County, District Membership Fee per Child.. Our other main cost is the weekly hire of our meeting place, plus other costs that include general running of our Scout Group and to support the effective running of our three Sections.
If you are interested in finding out more how our Scout Group runs we are alway open to new parents joining our Scout Group Executive Committee that meet 3 times a year and the yearly Group AGM.
