Regional Development Project Review August 2015


During the five years of the project we engaged with many people. The pie chart below gives a visual representation of this key engagement. The categories included are:

  • New Groups/Sections: Young People
  • New Groups/Sections: adults (volunteers)
  • Existing leaders: Districts, Group support, Group Development Days
  • Communities: schools, youth orgs, further/higher education, businesses
  • Volunteer enquiries

It should be noted that this list is not exhaustive and that a number of groups of people have been left out as it was not realistic to quantify them (e.g. parents and families of young people we have worked with).
