How does the Scout Group work?

The Group Scout Leader manages the Group and is responsible for its support and development and the programme of activities it offers to young people.

The Group Chairman and the Group Executive Committee support the Group Scout Leader and ensure the effective administration of the Scout Group. The Group Scout Leader nominates the Group Chairman and the relationship should be one of partnership and mutual support.

The Group Executive Committee aims to make sure that the Scout Group has the facilities and resources needed to deliver good Scouting in the Group.

The leaders in the Group work with their team of adults (who perform a variety of roles) to deliver an exciting and attractive programme of activities for young people in the Group. Their work is co-ordinated through the Group Scouters’ meeting (chaired by the Group Scout Leader), which includes the Section Leaders and Assistants.

The Group Chairman works closely with the Group Scout Leader and together they ensure the successful running of the Scout Group.

Why do we need a Group Executive Committee?

The Group Executive Committee exists to support the Group Scout Leader and ensure the effective administration of the Scout Group. It is responsible for:

  • maintenance of the Group’s property and equipment
  • raising of funds and the administration of the Group’s finance
  • insurance of persons, property and equipment
  • group public occasions – and ensuring the Group is well regarded in public
  • assisting with the recruitment of leaders and other adult support
  • establish any sub-Committees which may be required
  • the appointment of co-opted Executive Members, Group Administrators and Group Advisers

The group executive currently holds meetings 3 or 4 times a year. It is led by our Group Chairman.
