Recovery Fund

This funding is available to Scout Groups and Explorer Scout Units in both the UK and British Scouts Overseas, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria. Applications are now closed.

About the Recovery Fund

We know that some groups and units are still struggling to afford the costs of keeping Scouts going locally, and that some formed during the pandemic haven't had the chance to establish a stable financial footing. 

Following the success of the Recovery Fund in 2021, we're reopening the Fund to offer further financial assistance to groups and units with limited affordability and to those formed since the 2020 census.

Thanks to the efforts you made in 2021, we're able to fund these grants from our Race Round The World appeal. The Recovery Fund is also supported by the £1.50 ring-fenced in each 2021 Membership Fee and grants secured from Pears Foundation.

If you need further assistance, please contact your volunteer line manager or
