Scouting is primarily delivered to our young people at district level and each district has a District Commissioner who reports to our County Commissioner.
Dorset scouts enjoys and values the support of our President Captain Michael Fulford-Dobson RN and our Vice-Presidents Rear Admiral John Croydon RN, James Morton, Rob Seward, The Ven. Geoffrey Walton, Richard Whiteside. Between them they bring many professional skills and years of scouting experience.
The executive committee is responsible for compliance and charity governance, financial management and fund raising, property, equipment and insurance, adult appointment and people management, IT support, archives, safety, support, promotion and development of local scouting.
John Godber is our chair, supported by Elizabeth Poppitt as secretary and Jessica Hooper as treasurer. The committee has a number of members that make up the team.
A sub-committee manages the appointment of adults to county positions which is led by Hiliary Stroud.
Whilst some funds come from subscriptions, Dorset scouts is always looking for ways to raise more so it can do more.
It welcomes interest from outside organisations and individuals, whether to support a specific project or to support our work in general. Please contact our office who will put you in touch with our executive for a discussion.
