The main focus of the County Development Service is the growth of scouting across South London Scout County.

Development is thinking about ways you can deliver even better Scouting to more young people, and prioritising those ideas. There are so many ways to do that, including:

  • Opening a new section

  • Recruiting new adults

  • Building community support

  • Engaging with the parents of your members

In short, if your plans intends to enrich the Scouting experience you can bet it will be development!
