TRUST 2018

Sunday 18 November saw 150 delegates take part in Norfolk Scouts TRUST event. The event was part of Trustees week  and was the first of its kind for Norfolk Scouts.

The delegates were made up of 50 Group Executives, 9 District Executives and a representation from the County Board of Trustees.

Owen, Ward Volunteering Officer (Trustees) and Stuart Howells, Vice Chair of The Scout Association joined the day  too. Stuart opened the event and delivered the Risk Management Workshops.

Stuart commented that “It was great being involved because it gave the local Trustees in Norfolk the tools to do their roles more fully. That opportunity does not come along too often.  There was so much energy and fun during the day it was a pleasure too have joined the Norfolk team”

Property, Land, Freehold and Leases & GDPR sessions were delivered by Clapham & Collinge Solicitors.

Faizal Ali from Unity delivered the Insurance workshops and stated that he felt that it had been a very “Worthwhile day for delegates who had commented on how much they were enjoying the event”.


The day was very positive and there was some great evaluation feedback, for example:


“Thank you – training day that I didn’t want to end.”

“Very informative”

“Good tips on recruiting and retaining trustees”

“Really useful in all aspects it covered updates, essential and expectations of a trustee”

“Good ideas”

“Filled in the gaps for me.”

“Thank you for a well run, informative day.  It is nice to be acknowledged as exec members and included in something to do with scouting.”

“Thank you – training day that I didn’t want to end.”


Rena Savage, County Chair commented that “I couldn’t have been prouder of the County team that pulled this together.”
