Clwyd Area New Horizons Fund – Creating Opportunities

Clwyd Area Scouts runs a New Horizons fund to encourage all members of The Scout Association in Clwyd to participate in activities that would typically be outside the usual range by nature of cost.

The fund intends 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’

All members of The Scout Association in Clwyd are actively encouraged to apply for funding from the New Horizons fund via the application form below
