Communications & PR


A voluntary organisation, no matter how large or small, ultimately depends on its reputation for its success.

This is what Public Relations is all about, reputation, what we say and what others say about us. It should be a planned effort to establish and then maintain goodwill between the Scout Association and the public.

Communication is the imparting or exchanging of information by speaking, writing, or using some other medium. By using our creative skills to manage social media - Twitter, Facebook, Group / District / County websites etc as well as leaflet and posters.

How we present ourselves and the Scout Association can have a positive or negative effect on our reputation.

The information and images in the posts below and the links on this page are to help get our public image right.
