Welcome to the page for Scout Active Support in Monmouthshire
Monmouthshire Active Support is a group of adults who have one thing in common – a wish to support Scouting. Scout Active Support welcomes men and women of all ages, interests and backgrounds. There is no need to have been involved in Scouting or Guiding before, all that is required is a willingness to give some of your time to Scouting. In return you will make friends and be able to join with others doing whatever you decide. Scout Active Support has its own social and activity programme.
So what do we mean by “Active Support”
Active Support encompasses the talents of the former Scout Fellowship, whether it is physical, mental, geared to a particular technical skill or general support. It could be as a badge examiner, a Training Adviser to new leaders, catering for courses, running pioneering courses, assisting with hill walking, rock climbing etc. We all have something to offer as far as supporting Scouting is concerned whatever our age or ability. In fact, active support means just about anything! Scout Active Support is a large part of the ‘backbone’ of the Scout Movement – supporting the young people and voluntary leaders wherever help is required. The key to our success is our flexibility – we’re here to help.
We are alway looking for more people to join our Fellowship, we have about 25 members headed by Alan Llewellyn who has been doing this role for many years. To give you an example of what we have done and will be taking part.
