Equipment and insurance


There are many issues surrounding equipment, and before a decision is made to purchase property the District Executive Committee will need to address the following:
All of the above are simple questions that may prove difficult to answer.
Good practice indicates that equipment should be purchased for as wide a use as possible but responsibility for booking, checking and maintaining it will need to be clear.
Additionally consideration should be given to the District Scout Network borrowing existing equipment from Scout Groups where this is possible.


The District Executive Committee has a responsibility to ensure that all persons and property are adequately insured.
The District Treasurer will be able to advise you on what needs to be done in your case.
