The Scout Grants Committee

The Scout Grants Committee is the group of national volunteers that manages the grants provided to local Scouting by the Scout Association.

There are 10 members with various levels of experience in a variety of local and national Scouting roles. Two of our members are young people (18-25 years old). There is also a representative of the UK Chief Commissioner and a senior member of staff. Experience of funding youth organisations outside Scouting is also represented.

The Committee meets twice a year but its members are very active between meetings, advising potential applicants on how to design projects, visiting major projects to assess their performance and offer support, and dealing with Scout Grants Committee business by email.

All roles on the Committee are currently filled, and any opportunities for roles on the Committee will be advertised on the Scout Association website.

The Current Chair of the Scout Grants Committee is Debbie Ladds, she may be contacted by email here.


The Scout Grants Committee is supported by the Growth and Development Funding Manager and Growth and Development Funding Administrator at Gilwell Park.
