Many of you will have picked up on the news last month that the new digital system to support our adult volunteers will now not be ready until later the summer. As an early adopting Region, we were due to switch over from Compass in February 2024. Thanks are due to everyone in South East Scotland who has been contributing to the preparation for this switch over. While it was disappointing to hear of this delay, having had time to reflect the Regional Leadership Team see this as a huge opportunity for us to spend time working on the new teams structure in our districts and groups without the distraction of coping with a new digital tool. Help and guidance is available here This helps us remember that the changes to the volunteer experience are much more than a new digital system. If your group is still to discuss how the move to the teams based approach is going to transform the way we volunteer locally and help us to offer skills for life for more young people then speak to other volunteers in your group or discuss it at your next leader meeting. If you would like any help or support ask your District Lead volunteer or email
