Team Structure

The Scout Association exists by authority of a Royal Charter. These give authority to the Bye Laws of the Association, which are approved by Her Majesty's Privy Council.  The Bye Laws, in turn, authorise the making of rules for the regulation of the Association's affairs. The rules are laid out in the Policy, Organisation and Rules of The Scout Association. 

The Group Executive Committee is the Board of Trustees of the Scout Group and exists to support the Group Scout Leader in meeting the responsibilities of the appointment and to provide support for Scouting sections within the Group.   T

The Group Executive/Board of Trustees meets regularly throughout the year and has committed itself to becoming an exemplar of good practice in governance. It developed and approved a budget aligned to the plan, and forecast forward 3-5 years.  It has adopted ways of working which will facilitate the achievement of the plan and will provide a transparent approach to governance and decision making.
