Basingstoke West Development Fund

The development fund exists to develop Scouting within Basingstoke West.

It was established in the early 1980s and is managed by a group of Trustees. See Background (below) for the full story.

There are 2 clear elements to the fund – Supporting Scouts and Guides within the Basingstoke Area to enjoy the activities Scouting and Guiding provides, which due to their personal/family circumstances might be difficult. Applications can be made to the fund for Financial Support. Applications must be made before the finances are required and the Trustees meet three times a year in February, June and October (and applications need to be made 4 weeks before a meeting). Due to the sensitive nature of this element of the fund, the Trustees conduct their business confidentially.

The second element of the fund is to invest in the Development of Basingstoke West Scout District to grow through specific projects.
