Being a trustee

Trustees play a key part in Scouts, and keep an eye on our vision. They make sure that our young people ehave the best experience at Scouts, and check that things are being done safely and legally. Trustees are a team of volunteers who see the big picutre, make decisions, and work together to help Scouts run smoothly. Trustees don’t work directly with our young people but instead support leaders to deliver a fantastic programme, while having a laugh, making new friends and learning new skills themselves.

Chelmsford Scouts as an organisation has it’s own trustee board who look after the district as a whole – from our campsite and stores, to our finances and events. Each of our individual Scout Groups will also have it’s own trustee board who look after local finances, events and safety.

If you’re new to Scouting, you might be a little confused by how we’re structured.
