Situation

Scouting is a wonderful opportunity for children to be involved in. We are now the only Group left in the Dudley Central Area, We cannot afford to let another HQ's close. If this Group closed it would be the end of Scouting in Central Dudley. We need to continue providing this service, at present we have a strong attendance with waiting lists to join.

Solution

Our Scout Group has provided a service for over 90 years, By restoring and repairing the HQ's will ensure more children have the chance to enjoy the Scouting World in the Dudley Central area. Scouting provides a safer alternative than children walking the streets and helps to reduce ASB issues in an already deprived area. We would then be able to look at taking in more leaders and children, and open the HQ's for more use by the community.
