Hello! I’m Calum Harvie, the new Local Growth Officer with Scouts Scotland. My role is to provide our Regions and Districts in the east of Scotland with practical support to achieve their growth aspirations. My specific focus is on opening new Sections for underrepresented communities and in areas of multiple deprivation (SIMD 1-3).

This is an exciting role and I’m looking forward to working with you as we provide more and more young people with the fantastic opportunities and skills for life afforded by Scouting.

Before joining Scouts Scotland, I spent over 20 years working freelance on a wide range of comms, project management and journalism projects. Away from work, I do more Scouting as a team member in my local Scout Group. I’m a keen distance runner and enjoy hill walking and camping, too. I’m also a music nerd, particularly fond of punk and metal.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if there’s anything I can help you with: calum.harvie@scouts.scot 01383 665655
