The Group Support Committee is an integral and important part of a successful Scout Group. Our Committee provides support to the Adult Leaders so they can focus on delivering Scouting without being distracted by membership enquiries, fundraising, maintenance etc.
Our Group Support Committee is typically made up of parents of youth members, former youth members, and other people interested in the Group. The Group Leader and Assistant Group Leader are members of the Group Support Committee, but Adult Leaders are not.
The duties of the Group Support Committee are to:
- Ensure that the Group has adequate funding to enable it to provide high quality programs to the members at an acceptable cost;
- Ensure that proper records are kept and that all funds are accounted for;
- Arrange and provide suitable facilities to enable the Group to carry out its program;
- Provide and maintain equipment required by the Sections of the Group in liaison with leaders;
- Establish and maintain good relationships with other community organisations and
community leaders generally;
- Assist the Group Leader with the implementation of the Group plan and receive reports on progress;
- Assist the Group Leader to recruit, retain and support leaders for all Sections of the Group;
- Recommend the appointment of a Group Leader.
