Scout Active Support

Scout Active Support is a division of The Scout Association in the United Kingdom that provides support to units and activities. Formerly known as the Scout Fellowship, it was renamed in September 2009.

Scout Active Support provides a resource base from which Groups across the District or County can access skills instructors, administrative support, or training.

Typical roles for Scout Active Support members are to provide specialist skills to Scouting activities, for example, kayaking instruction or pioneering.

Scout Active Support can also provide extra hands on camps, enabling the camp leaders to run and organise activities without having to overstretch themselves with much of what could be considered a support function (for example, cooking meals).

Famous quotes containing the words support, scout and/or active:

    The confirmation of Clarence Thomas, one of the most conservative voices to be added to the [Supreme] Court in recent memory, carries a sobering message for the African- American community.... As he begins to make his mark upon the lives of African Americans, we must acknowledge that his successful nomination is due in no small measure to the support he received from black Americans.
    Kimberly Crenshaw (b. 1959)

    Simone Clouseau: Jacques would make a wonderful father. He has many redeeming qualities, you know.
    Sir Charles: Name one.
    Simone Clouseau: Oh, he’s kind, loyal, faithful, obedient.
    Sir Charles: You’re either married to a boy scout or a dachshund.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    Play is a major avenue for learning to manage anxiety. It gives the child a safe space where she can experiment at will, suspending the rules and constraints of physical and social reality. In play, the child becomes master rather than subject.... Play allows the child to transcend passivity and to become the active doer of what happens around her.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)
