Thanks to all of our adult volunteers who took part in one of 3 Regional Webinars aimed at updating District and Group Lead Volunteers, District/Group Trustee Board Chairs and Group Transformation Champions on the changes that we can focus our energy on progressing with now, in advance of the new Digital System going live later in 2024.

The changes we should be moving forward with in our Scout Groups are:

  1. Embedding our Volunteering Culture at all levels
  2. Introducing new team structures and title changes at all levels
  3. Move to Trustee Boards at District and Group levels
  4. Improve our current District Appointments Panels (this will be progressed by the District Teams)

For those who were unable to attend the webinars, or anyone who wants to be up to speed with what you can be working on in your group to improve the experience for all our volunteers we have provided links to the following documents to support you.

  1. A PDF version of the slides we used which contain the links to a range of resources which will help you to progress the changes relating to our Volunteer Culture, our Team Titles and Structures and the move to Trustee Boards.
  2. A link to a recording of the Webinar held on 21st March – lasts 1hr 22mins

Passcode: 8uue=AfV

  1. A document providing details of the different roles in a Section Team

Watch out for the above items on the agenda of your next Group Leader meeting, and if they are not on the agenda, suggest that they are.

Thanks for your continued support in progressing these important improvements which will help us attract new volunteers, make those of us who are volunteering want to stay and allow us to offer Scouts to more young people.

If you have any questions relating to these changes or about the Transformation programme generally, please contact
