Expenses Form

Specific expenses

Any purchases of equipment above and beyond the normal termly budget require prior agreement with the Group Executive committee.

The Group will pay for adults’ uniforms and replace them after five years if necessary.  Adult uniform is:  beige shirt with badges sewn on, belt with emblem buckle, navy trousers and a grey fleece.

Problems

It has always been Group policy that any family financially disadvantaged to the extent that one or more child’s participation in any Scouting event may be in doubt can be subsidized at the discretion of the Group Scout Leader and the Group Chairman, although this is not considered a normal way forward.  The Group Chairman and Group Scout Leader may apply to our local Rotary Club who have kindly offered some assistance in this area if necessary.   There is also a UK Scout Association fund which may be applied to, using the form here

Other expenses

Questions about whether a specific expense may or may not be appropriate should be directed to the Group Scout Leader.

The Group Scout Leader may decide that the Group should provide assistance with petrol and other reasonable costs relating to regular attendance which would otherwise make it difficult for an adult to continue membership:  In the event of a disagreement, the Leader has the right of appeal to the Executive Committee.
