A generous anonymous bequest enabled Clyde Regional Scout Council to establish an Outdoor Pursuits Training Fund in December 1984. The purpose of the Fund is to provide grant assistance to Explorer Scouts, Scout Network, Leaders and other persons who wish to attend recognised training courses in outdoor pursuits. Suitable training courses are those which on completion provide certificated evidence of leadership and / or instructional ability within the terms of POR, examples being Mountain Leadership Certificates, Ski Leader certificates, appropriate British Canoe Union certificates or RYA Certificates in water activities (in cases of uncertainty applicants should contact the PR & Development Officer in the Regional Office on 0141 248 6022 before the application is submitted).
The Region's Development Fund exists to provide small amounts of financial support to Scout Groups and Districts that will extend, develop and improve the quality of Scouting provided to young people across Clyde Region.
The fund should be used to contribute to a pool of funding from the Group and District (or other sources) and should not normally be the only source of funding for a particular activity, event or project.
