UK membership fee abolished for adults in Scouting

UK membership fee abolished for adults in Scouting

Fundraising Events, News
The Scout Association has announced that, from January 2016, the HQ membership fee should not be charged adult members and should be calculated based on young people only. This encourages the idea that volunteering is more attractive to future and current adults when they do not pay a membership fee. The new HQ fee will be collected annually and calculated based on numbers of Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. The HQ membership fee for all members under 18 will be standardised at £25.50 (£25 for prompt payment) for 2016. The new calculation has been designed so that the total amount of money that the UKHQ receives should not change (based on 2015 census data). Our research shows that 86% of adult fees are already paid locally via the youth subscription or fundraising
