Mersey Weaver Scout District is keen to encourage and support young people who wish to participate in international events and projects. Scouting is an international movement and a visit abroad is a fantastic opportunity to learn about another culture, meet other Scouts, understand how they live, experience unique adventures and extend the horizons of our members beyond the village, town or city in which they live. All of the top Awards in Scouting require participants to experience or incorporate some understanding of global issues and a visit abroad is great way of enabling that.
It is recognised however that the expense of organising visits abroad can sometimes be barrier. It has thereforebeen agreed by the District’s Executive to establish a Designated Fund to support international Scouting. The fund can be accessed to secure bookings for accommodation, travel, insurance while fundraising is taking place; to subsidise the cost of specialist equipment or in certain circumstances help less fortunate families.
To apply for funding from the International Scouting Fund you will need to complete a project proposal.
Completed Project Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration before being forwarded on to the Executive committee.
