What is Scout Active Support -
Essentially Fellowships are a group of adults who wish in some way to provide 'active support' to local Scouting. Fellowships can be made up of men and women of all ages, interests and backgrounds, whether or not they have been involved with Scouting or Guiding before. They can operate at local, national and international levels, but are most often connected to a District or County.
All members of Scout Fellowship are there because they wish to give some of their time to Scouting - this can be as much or as little as they like, in a wide variety of activities. Each Fellowship also has their own social and activity programme.
The aim of the Scout Fellowship is to "Provide Active Support", with the emphasis being very much on practical support of the youth programme at all levels of the Association, from the local Scout Group to National level. Fellowships may be specialist groups, for example campsite service crews, activity teams, first aid teams or radio operators, or they may be a more general group of individuals with a variety of interests and skills who are ready to help out at all sorts of different events.
Fellowships around the country regularly get involved in event organisation and support, adventurous activity provision, fundraising, supporting Section Leaders, providing social activities for Districts and Counties, skills based sessions and training. In fact 'active support' can be just about anything, the list is endless
