About Newark District
The Newark District Scout Council is a registered charity (number 1031735)
How big are we
There are 8 Scout Groups in the District and on a weekly basis we deliver Scouting to around 500 young people aged 6-18, with the help of nearly 200 volunteer leaders and administrative supporters.
How does it work
Scouting is delivered wholly by trained volunteers (Leaders, Assistants, Managers, Supporters, Administrators) although we do have the support of a national staff team employed by the Scout Association.
The Management Team
The District is led by the District Commissioner who is supported by Assistant District Commissioners, District Leaders, Advisers and Administrators. These volunteers provide guidance and support to Scout Groups and their sections.
The District Executive Committee plays a vital role in the running of a Scout District. The Committee makes decisions and carries out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality Scouting can be delivered to young people in the District.
