Personal Expenses

We strongly believe that expenses and fees should not be a barrier to any adult’s participation in Scouting and, in principle, volunteers should not be out of pocket. Please refer to your group’s policy on personal expenses for more information.

Advice

  • Do accept volunteer expenses. You can always give them back as a donation to your Group if you do not need reimbursing.
  • Don’t ever accept money as payment from someone you have helped in the course of volunteering. Explain to them that they can make a donation to Scouting if they so wish.
