Scouting happen

We have some funding available to Sections, Groups, Districts and Regions to support the delivery of a quality Scouting programme that is available for all. The Scottish Development Fund provides a number of grants.

Thank you for the grant we received. It meant that all our children were able to attend a National Activity Centre and be part of our whole Scouting community.
