1st Doddington Scout Group

Trustee Board & Trustee Selection 2024

The Trustee Board is a team of volunteers who work together, as charity trustees, to make sure Scouts is run safely and legally. At the heart of their role is a focus on strategy, performance and assurance. Effective Trustee Board governance helps our volunteers deliver fantastic programmes that give young people skills for life.

Effective Trustee Board governance helps our volunteers deliver fantastic programmes that give young people skills for life and maximises the Group's potential to make a hugely positive impact on its young members aged 4 - 18 years.

We are seeking Trustees to appoint from September 2024

Every Scout Group requires Trustees to form their Trustee Board.

We are currently seeking to appoint up to 11 Trustees, including Group Chair and Group Treasurer roles. The Trustee Board welcomes any adult aged 18 or over with an interest and/or skills in a governance role to apply. 

The time commitment is to attend Trustee Board meetings up to 6 times a year, along with our AGM, plus some tasks may need to be undertaken between meetings. 

Appointments are planned to be for a 3 year term, starting from our AGM on 22nd September 2024.

All Trustees will need to have a DBS check undertaken as part of their appointment, and complete 5 e-learning modules.

Applications can be made via the online application form link below, and will be reviewed by a panel who will make a recommendation to our current Trustee Board. The Group Scout Council will then be asked to appoint the recommended Trustees at our AGM.
