Who Are We?

Based in the heart of Henfield and part of the Adur Valley Scout District, we are one of the largest and most active Scout Groups in Sussex; every week over 120 young people aged 6-18 from Henfield and the surrounding area join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our top quality Scouting programme.

The Role

  • Provide administrative support to the running of the Trustee Board.
  • Work with the Chairperson to set meeting agendas and arrange meeting logistics.
  • Take accurate and accessible minutes of meetings.
  • Distribute agendas, minutes and supporting documents for meetings.
  • Support the accurate records of census details, ownership of property and equipment, insurance and financial information.
  • Communicate with Scouting families by email where appropriate.
  • Support the completion of the Annual Census return.
  • Prepare the appropriate administration for the Annual General Meeting, including collating the Annual Report and Accounts for the Annual General Meeting.
