Active Support

East Dorset District Scouts

Active Support Unit (EDDS ASU)

The ASU is for anyone over the age of 18.  It is a way for adults to volunteer time to Scouting in a flexible way that suits them.

Programme delivery to young people

A District Active Support Unit can be a source of extra adult help in Leader absence. Or they can teach skills that the existing Leader team do not have, such as pioneering.
The County Active Support Unit can provide support to Explorer Scouts or the Scout Network when planning international expeditions. This could include fundraising.

Development of Scouting

A Group Active Support Unit can provide Training Advisers to all Leaders in the Scout Group. This could include delivering Module 1, Essential Information, to all new adults supporting the Group including parents.

A District Active Support Unit can provide catering at District events during the year. This could include District Sectional Camps, District Meetings and the District AGM.
