District Commissioners Support Day

New and existing District Commissioners are invited to attend a Support Day at Gilwell Park, which offers the chance to discuss and share experiences with other volunteers in the same role.

A team from UKHQ will also be on hand to offer direct support and answer queries related to District Commissioner roles. A range of areas will be covered, including:

  • Growing your District, recruitment and retention of volunteers
  • Briefings from HQ departments and finding out the support they provide
  • Information and updates relevant to your role and focused on the 2018 vision and scouting4all strategy
  • Specialist workshops 
  • An opportunity to meet and ask questions of members of the UK Chief Commissioner Team.

There will also be an opportunity to put your questions to the management team of The Scout Association.

Who is the day for?
New and existing District Commissioners, and Deputy District Commissioners.


The day starts at 8.30am with tours and registration, main content of the day starts at 8:50am and finishes at 6pm (timings subject to change). Lunch and refreshments are provided. There is no cost to attend the day, although regrettably travel expenses to Gilwell Park are not covered.
