At a glance

The People Programme 

This work will primarily involve delivering new and revised processes, practices, and contents that will shape and support a transformed volunteer journey. To make it easier to manage and deliver, this work is subdivided into 4 themes covering about 20 projects. 

The Volunteer Journey  

Describes a volunteer’s path whilst volunteering with The Scouts. It starts from the moment they are first recruited and welcomed into the Scouts, through their appointment and induction, training, recognition, and review, until they eventually leave The Scouts.
