This fund will help support the initial start up costs when a new Group is formed, or a Group opens a new section.

A one-off grant of £200 per new section may be applied for.

For example, if an entirely new Group is being launched consisting of Beavers, Cubsand Scouts, they may apply for 3 x £200.

A Group may only be awarded a maximum of one grant from this fund per year.

Adult Support Fund

Small Grants Fund

The Small Grants Fund is designed to provide young people with the experience of completing a grant application and presenting their proposal. Each Regional Commissioner in Wales will be allocated a share of this fund and will organise and run a grants process and event in their own region.

Once a year a presentation day will occur in each region where, if their initial application is successful, the young people will have the chance to attend and present their proposals to their peers.
