The Scout Group are Uniformed leaders who actively lead the sections, they are supported the the Group Scout Leader.
The Group Executive Committee is chaired by the Group Chairperson and manages the business affairs of the Group. They are responsible for the maintenance of property; raising funds, administration of Group finance, insurance, property and equipment. Members of the Group Executive Committee are the ‘Trustees’ of the Scout Group which is a charity.
The Scout Group is led by a Group Scout Leader (GSL) and managed by a Group Executive Committee. The different Sections are run by Uniformed Leaders. All are unpaid volunteers who have been checked to ensure they are suitable to work with young people and who have available the support and training they need from the Scout Association to ensure everyone involved enjoys Scouting in a safe manner.
The Executive team plays a vital role in the running of the Scout Group and supporting the Group Scout Leader. It makes decisions and carries out administrative tasks (eg raising funds, scout hut maintenance, insurance, etc.) to ensure that the best quality of Scouting can be delivered to everyone.
