Publicity material

One of the easiest and most effective ways of generating local awareness about Scouting is by displaying posters and handing out leaflets. You can buy promotional material from the information centre or if you feel creative, you could make your own using the scout brand centre.

It should be remembered that posters and leaflets alone, however, will not be a very effective method of recruiting. So don’t rely just on these to get you new leaders!

Case studies

33rd Oxford Kidlington

The 33rd Oxford Kidlington made arrangements with the two local bus companies that serve the village. The bus companies allowed them to place a poster on the relevant buses, advertising local scouting. The group also managed to get the scheme promoted in the local press, and two new leaders were recruited through this method.
