Help make decisions for our group as a member of our group trustee board

Approximate time required
3 or 4, 2-hour meetings a year  

If you would like to help scouting but don't have the time to be a leader or helper, then our group trustee board is a great way of helping our group with minimal time commitment but maximum impact.

Our group trustee board plays a key role in the day-to-day running of our group. The members make decisions and carry out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality scouting can be delivered to young people in our sections. The board plays a very important part in the running of our group. In fact, we could not function properly without it!

Although the 'trustee' bit in our board's title makes it sound very formal, it is not like that at all - our board members are people like you! Everyone brings different skills and experiences and come from different backgrounds. This helps to ensure a variety of perspectives and a more rounded and effective board.

This is a rewarding role and is ideal if you would like to support the growth and development of young people and our leadership team but not by working directly with young people. 

No previous experience of scouting or being a trustee is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We provide a warm welcome, a sociable network and some short online learning to support you and to help you get started as well as lots of ongoing support. 
Being just a small part of scouting is great fun and it goes without saying that supporting young people can be one of the most rewarding things you can do, plus it all looks good on your CV.
