The Area has a New Horizons fund that is designed to encourage all members of The Scout Association in Clwyd to take part in activities that would normally be outside the usual range by nature of cost. By establishing the fund the intention is to actively promote participation in activities that capture the imagination, and focus youth members and adult leaders to take part in life enhancing activities that will develop them as individuals, and sustain their involvement in Scouting to support future members in every section.
Examples of such activities could include but are not restricted to:-
- World Jamborees
- Explorer Belt Expeditions
- Exceptional activities for the Queen’s Scout and Duke of Edinburgh Gold awards (possibly overseas)
- Overseas Explorer/Network activities with a notable service element part; Area, District or Unit level.
- The activity should stand on its own merit and not be a vehicle to obtain funding from this ring fenced fund and the amount awarded will be meaningful and substantial.
- The funding will be to cover direct costs and not administration or overheads.
- The fund is not for capital projects.
- Applications can be made by groups, activity leaders or individuals.
