The other part of the District Team is the District Support Team which includes the Assistant District Commissioners for the Beaver, Cub and Scout Sections. As well as their District Leaders who will often be section leaders working within a Scout Group but who are tasked with visiting other Colonies Packs or Troops to offer practical hands on support to our hard working dedicated leaders.

In addition to these roles we have a variety of other adults who support us by volunteering in a variety of ways such as a part of our Active Support Unit or in our District Scout Shop; working on projects at our Camp site as well as assisting with our District Gang Show. Each is vital to the smooth running of our District.
