Group Support Community
Like any other organisation there needs to be a support system in place. In Scouting, support for the delivery of the Scout Program by the Section Leaders is provided by the parents of the youth members.
Each Scout Group has a Parent Support Group. This Community is made up of parents and supporters of the Group.
The Group Committee generally consists of a Chairperson who works closely with the Group Leader to ensure effective management of the whole Group. There is also a Secretary and Treasurer who are responsible for minutes, correspondence and the finances of the Group respectively.
There are other ways the parents can support the Group and these may consist of Group Fundraiser, Quartermaster, Publicity Officer etc. Roles can be tailored to suit individuals circumstances.
Overall the responsibilities of the Group Support Community are:
- Manage the Scout Group
- Maintain the resources of the Group (human & physical)
- Raise funds and administer the Group finances
- Public relations (Group Newsletter, Website, Media, etc)
- Assist in the recruitment of Leaders and other adult support
Any parent or member of the public can become involved with the Group as either a Uniformed Volunteer (Section Leader) or a Non-Uniformed Volunteer (committee, supporter, badge examiner, sponsor or helper).
The 3rd Bathurst (All Saints Cathedral) Scout Group Community meets on the 3rd Thursday of the Month at the Scout Hall.
