The CEC supporting Scouting in Berkshire

The CEC manages a busy agenda to support Scouting in Berkshire and current business includes: finance and budgets; funding Scouting and its projects (eg: paid staff; Online Support Manager; partly funding specialist activity training; etc); health and safety matters; growth and development (including the employment of a full-time and part-time Local Development Officer); marketing and communications; supporting events (eg: Uganda 2019;  WINGS 2020; and the Jamboree Units); County Support Services (including the employment of a part-time County Administrator); as well as fulfilling other trustee obligations.

The CEC is supported by a County Finance sub-committee (FSC). The CEC is also in the process of setting up a 'Risk Management' sub-committee. Ad hoc groups are also set up to cover specific business such as data protection, large events, etc. 

Approved Minutes and papers of CEC Meetings can be downloaded by members of Berkshire Scouts from the link in the right panel. Non-members of Berkshire Scouts can apply for copies of CEC Minutes, and Annual Reports, by contacting the Chair & Deputy Chair.

Funds

The CEC manages two funds that are available to support Scouting in Berkshire.

Roger King International Fund

The Roger King International Fund is to facilitate participation in international Scouting experiences outside of the UK for individuals who, for financial reasons, might otherwise be excluded from this important aspect of Scouting. Any member of Berkshire Scouts is eligible to apply.

For further information please contact Bruce Clark, ACC (International).

Michael Nightingale Community Fund

The purpose of the Michael Nightingale Community Fund is to encourage links by members of Berkshire Scouting to reach out to, and work with, the local community that they serve. The fund is available for use as 'pump priming' to get projects started. The themes must remain community-focused, however it could be 'getting old and young people together', while of course these themes remain able to be interpreted in a variety of creative ways.

For further information pleasecontact Melissa Green.
 

Funding Scouting in Berkshire

Scouting in Berkshire is actively and successfully delivered to 9,200 young people by more than 3,000 adult volunteers (census at January 2017). 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 & Deputy Chair if you have thoughts or contacts to support the funding of Scouting in Berkshire.
