We want all kids to be able to participate in our scout activities! Therefore, we offer The Scouts Support Fund, which provides scouts between the ages of 8-25. The Scout Support Fund gives the opportunity to take part of scouting on equal terms as their friends. On this website you find more information and instructions on how you apply.

The donation from the Support Fund is a contribution to scouts in need of economical or material support, so they can join scout activities arranged by their local scout group on equal terms as their friends. For example, the contribution can cover participation fees, member fees, travels, equipment or other similar costs. The contribution can also be  in terms of equipment.
The purpose of the Support Fund is to give more children and youth the opportunity to join activities that they otherwise would not have been able to take part of.

Support can be given to:

  • Individual members
  • Relatives or other representative of an individual member (eg. Patrol leader, trustee or other)
