International development projects

Most projects are developed by groups - representing local Scouting, from Group level right through to Regional or County level.

So, if a locally managed project is being developed, it is likely that much of local Scouting will be aware of it. It may be necessary to contact your AAC/ACC(I) to check if any such projects are in the pipeline.

WOSM have produced a fantastic resource that can help you to navigate through the processes of beginning partnerships. This resource can be accessed here.

If you are an individual who would like to become involved in a development project, contact one of the Global Advisers by sending an email to international@scout.org.uk. It may also be possible to make contact with another group undertaking a project if they have informed the International Office.

Sources of potential projects

Many projects develop through personal contacts, possibly through meeting Scouts at a UK international camp or at an international camp in another country.

Some projects are identified from the Scout Universal Fund, a list managed by the Africa Regional Office.

Occasionally links are established through community organisations, town links, faith communities or other charities/Aid organisations.
