Local Development Officers
We have been fortunate to have worked with Local Development Officers since 2007, and they have provided key support to local volunteer teams wanting to grow Scouting to even more young people and adults. Through a range of projects, Local Development Officers have supported opening new Scout Groups, opening new sections within existing Scout Groups, raising the profile of Scouting in communities through a range of events, and providing support to existing volunteers on how to continue to grow Scouting.
About the role
You can take a look at a selection of case studies above to get a flavour for some of the many successes. We are looking forward to building on these in the coming months and years ahead.
