Section brochure

Some parents will not really understand how the scout section or group is run. This sometimes prevents them from wanting to get involved or even knowing what kind of help is needed.

The brochure does not have to be very long – in fact, the shorter the better! Your aim should simply be to explain how the district, group or section is run, the types of roles that need filling for it to run effectively and (of course) who they should contact if they would like to help out!
