Providing Active Spport in Derbyshire

Welcome to the page for Scout Active Support in Derbyshire

Here, updates and details will be provided of Scout Active Support activities and events in Derbyshire

Active Support is a group of adults who have one thing in common - a wish to support Scouting. Scout Active Support welcomes men and women of all ages, interests and backgrounds. There is no need to have been involved in Scouting or Guiding before, all that is required is a willingness to give some of your time to Scouting. In return you will make friends and be able to join with others doing whatever you decide. Scout Active Support has its own social and activity programme.

The aim of Scout Active Support is to "Provide Active Support", with the emphasis being very much on supporting the youth programme in an active manner, at all levels of the Association from the local Scout Group to National level.

What do we mean by "Active Support"

Active Support encompasses the talents of the former Scout Fellowship, whether it is physical, mental, geared to a particular technical skill or general support. It could be as a badge examiner, a Training Adviser to new leaders, catering for courses, running pioneering courses, assisting with hill walking, rock climbing etc. We all have something to offer as far as supporting Scouting is concerned whatever our age or ability.

In fact, active support means just about anything!

Scout Active Support is a large part of the 'backbone' of the Scout Movement - supporting the young people and voluntary leaders wherever help is required. The key to our success is our flexibility - we're here to help.
