As Scouts we have Awards to recognise the amazing work our adult volunteers do and achieve. There are different Good Service Awards to celebrate and recognise volunteers throughout their time in Scouting.
We believe it’s good to share good news! And we wish to recognise incredible news and service across South East Scotland Scouts. So we are really excited to announce some Good Service 2021 news!
We’re delighted to share that twice as many of our adult volunteers received Good Service Awards in 2021 compared to 2020. From 39 to more than 94 awards.
Whilst we’ve not been able to present many awards in the way we’d have wished, we offer massive congratulations to everyone who has had their fantastic achievements recognised in this way. And we look forward to presenting many more awards throughout 2022.
“I do not do this for any recognition”. This may be something you commonly hear from people that volunteer with Scouting, but that does not mean we should not offer it.
Recognition for a job well done takes a variety of forms from a simple thank you, to recording the fact in minutes, ensuring parents know and acknowledging it by inviting them to participate in new challenges. These are the every‐day things that do mean something to most of us. These Awards help us formally recognise the work of our adult volunteers by presenting them with a special thank you certificate. Efforts do not go unnoticed!
