We maintain a page of information, advice and guidance on finding external funding to support Scouting. This was started by an intern working with us during summer 2015 and has been added to as we learn of others' experiences. If you've got suggestions, please get in touch with the County Chair & Vice Chair.

The CEC manages two funds that are available to support Scouting in Berkshire.
Funding Scouting in Berkshire
Scouting in Berkshire is actively and successfully delivered to 9,244 young people by more than 2,200 adult volunteers (census at January 2016). However, there are young people still waiting to join and many others that could benefit from Scouting. The CEC is continually looking for funding streams to help deliver even more Scouting to even more young people across the whole County. Please make contact with the Chair & Vice-Chair if you have thoughts or contacts to support the funding of Scouting in Berkshire.
