A message from Scouting ambassador Julia Bradbury

Julia Bradbury

Scouting ambassador and TV presenter Julia Bradbury has made a heartfelt video message explaining how Scout Community Week will raise vital funds for Scouts with disabilities.

By getting involved you’ll help us make sure that a disability never stops a young person or adult volunteer from joining the adventure.

All Groups taking part in Scout Community Week are asked to donate 25% of the money raised to help fund grants for Scouts and leaders with disabilities. This makes a big difference and provides funding for projects across the UK. The money raised can help in many ways:

• £28 could fund a carer for a child with cerebral palsy, making it possible for them to attend a Scouting event.

• £150 could fund training support for a Scout leader with a disability.

• £250 could pay for support for a Scout with a hearing impairment to attend a weekend camp.

Scout Community Week is also a great opportunity to raise money for your Group, support your community and spread the word about Scouting. Watch Julia Bradbury's video message below and register for Scout Community Week
