Group Finances

A steady income to our groups and districts is important to keep our work with our young members on track. Whether you’re looking for ideas to raise funds locally to cover your hall hire, for specific grants for a new project, or advice about claiming gift aid on donations, you can find resources to help you here. Additional resources can be found in the Resource Drive (login required).

If you’re looking to make a one-off donation or a regular contribution to support our work, you can do that through our donation page
