Additional Needs Support

Additional Needs Support

Supporting you to support the Additional Needs of our Young People

Scouting is an inclusive, values based movement and membership is open to all those who share our fundamental values. An additional need is any personal condition or situation that could make it more challenging for a young person to participate fully in Scouting. Our aim is to remove real and perceived barriers, with reasonable adjustments, to get young people participating.

We have a fantastic team of Additional Needs Advisers: Claire Mitchell, Sarah King & John Naylor. You can contact them to ask for support or advice.

There is also much information on the scouts website on many aspects of inclusion and diversity which might also give you help.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
