Grants and funds to support local Scouts

Freeze on All Grant Applications New and Pending
As you are aware, due to Covid-19 and the Government restriction guidelines around it, face to face scouting has been suspended until further notice.

We are now returning to work from a long period of furlough leave. We are currently not accepting new grant applications as we are prioritsing the backlog of enquiries and reviewing how we will process grant applications in the future.

For all applications that are pending a response, please be assured that you will be contacted as a priority.

We thank you for your patience and co-operation at this difficult time.

Please do check scouts.org.uk/coronavirus for further updates.

For urgent enquiries only, please contact the Information Centre and they will do their very best to help you. Email: info.centre@scouts.org.uk  (Opening hours: 9am to 5pm weekdays)

Funding opportunities

The Scouts are very fortunate to have received a number of donations from individuals and organisations to give back locally. These donations are for those who need financial support with Scouting and cover a range of activities.

Looking for funding? The types of activities we fund and to find details of how to apply.

The Scout Grants Committee

The Scout Grants Committee is the group of national volunteers who support the management of the grants provided to local Scouts. You can find more information about the Committee here.

General notes about UK HQ Grants

We require information and evidence relating to applicant accounts in most cases. We will not fund groups/units etc who are in a position to support themselves. Please see the SGC reserves policy for full details.
