IF you are part of the Scout movement and have a view on the organisation then you still have time to complete the Scout Experience Survey 2019.

The greater the number of responses the easier it is to understand the impact of scouts on young people and improve support for all volunteers.

The survey link,, can be shared with volunteers, young people (Scouts, Explorers and Network), parents and carers.

The survey is designed for anyone currently involved in Scouts, as well as anyone who may have left in the last 12 months.

A guide has been created to help promote the survey. This includes email templates, a checklist and tips on what to do.

There is also a prize draw for individuals as well as a prize for the two districts with the most responses. The survey closes on Monday, April 1, 2019.
