Gift Aid 
Every Group, District and County is a charity and so they’re able to claim 25% gift aid on eligible donations made to them by UK taxpayers. This includes any subscription fees received from parents or carers. The Scout Association has recently published updated guidance on its website providing guidance for registering and claiming gift aid. Details can be found on the following link: https://www.scouts.org.uk/about-us/support-scouts/gift-aid/

Potential funding for local scouting
The HQ website also has updated details of grant funding that may potentially be able to be applied for to provide financial support during the coronavirus pandemic. The potential funding opportunities are available on this link: https://www.scouts.org.uk/coronavirus/potential-funding-for-local-scouting/

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