Where the money goes

Our group uses Membership Subs that are paid each month to fund several things.

Activities / Badges

Our weekly section programmes are centred around fun activities for the young people to do.  These activities often count towards Activity and Challenge badges.  Subs fund these activities and pays for the badges awarded to our young people.

Capitation

“Capitation” is a charge we pay to our District for every young person who is a member of our group, regardless of how often that young person attends.

The fees we pay fund the support we get from our District, from the Greater London South-West County and the Scout Association Headquarters.  The Scout Association provides insurance for scouting activities we organise, whether at our hut or away from it.

Hut Costs

Infrastructure costs; our hut must be heated, lit, cleaned, serviced and insured.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
