Thank you to the Trustees who support us to deliver Skills for Life across 146 communities in Merseyside.

This week is Trustees' Week, and we want to thank all of the Trustees who volunteer their time across our 146 Scout Groups and 11 Districts that together deliver Skills for Life to over 8,000 young people across Merseyside.

Charity Trustees are volunteers who make some of the important decisions in Scouting.

They are members of a group known as the Executive Committee and every Scout Group and District has one. The Executive Committee in Scouting is similar to a Board of Governors in a school; essentially they support leadership teams to make sure that the assets of each charitable entity are used in the most appropriate way to ensure the best quality of Scouting is delivered to young people in the local area.

The volunteers that make up the Committee give their time to ensure that Scouting continues to meet its charitable purpose: safely and legally.

We couldn't do what we do without our Trustees - and this week we say thank you to all our Trustees for their time and commitment.

If you're not already; why should you consider becoming a member of one of our Executive Committees?

  1. You will help to support and develop local Scouting, allowing young people in the area to experience fun, friendship and everyday adventure.

  2. You will put your existing skills and experience to good use.

  3. It’s a great way to meet new people.

  4. You will learn new skills that could help build your CV, or just add to your experience or confidence in certain areas.

  5. Your work will make a difference to young people involved in Scouting locally.

If you'd like to talk to someone about getting involved, please use our Group finder on our homepage to get in touch with your local Group.
