Not all of our volunteers go camping, light fires or get out on the water. Some of our volunteers play a vital part by supporting the group in administrative roles. A Group Treasurer supports the group by helping to keep track of finances and supports the development of the group.
The Group Treasurer is a rewarding role and it is ideal for a person who would like to support Scouting but not by working directly with young people. The Group Executive committee comprising of a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer work together to ensure that the finances of the group are able to support the leaders to deliver exciting and adventurous programmes.
Time commitment for this role is flexible with a few hours a month to help administer the finances and four / five meetings a year to give a brief account of the finances to the Group Executive Committee and present a brief yearly summary. All of our accounts are held on Microsoft Excel making them easy to administer. No previous experience is required and full training will be provided to support you in the role.
Scouting in the UK is organised through The Scout Association. Its purpose is to help young people, aged 6-25 years old, achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. With 450,000 members in the UK, Scouting is the largest mixed youth organisation in the country. Scouting happens in over 130 communities across Berkshire, involving over 9,200 young people from a wide range of backgrounds.
