Governance

Warwickshire Scouts is overseen by a Trustee Board, who is a team of volunteers who work together to make sure Scouts is run safely and legally.

Together, Trustees make sure the charity is well managed, risks are assessed and mitigated, buildings and equipment are in good working order, and everyone follows legal requirements and Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR). Their support helps other volunteers run a fantastic programme that gives young people skills for life (and experiences they’ll remember forever).

Changes to our Trustee Board

Following changes to Policy, Organisation and Rules in April 2024, changes will be made to composition of the Trustee Board at our next AGM.

At this stage, we are looking for expressions of interest to join our County Trustee Board.
If you are interested, please email the County Lead Volunteer, Paul Wakeley.
