Resources for our leaders
We believe that the time Leaders give to Scouting is valuable. Time wasted is time better spent helping young people make new friends, have amazing adventures, and learning new skills. We believe admin should be simple and automated as much possible - saving you time and effort.
Portsmouth Scouts has put together a series of information, guidance, education and other materials to help Leaders be their most effective. Explore the links below to find out more.

A common admin tasks for Leaders is to ensure the required paperwork is completed. While nothing replaces the official guidance in POR (Policy, Organisation and Rules), the information here will help simplify starting most new volunteers.
Being a Leader demands regularly completing very similar administrative tasks - ordering badges, requesting DBS, checking training, organising activities or events. We want as much of this to be simple, online and automated wherever possible. Let us know if there's something you want adding. In the meantime, we can help with:
Nights Away Notification (NAN)
Creating shared events (in OSM)
There are always some thing which needs notification, reporting or permission. We have created online versions of some of the most commonly needed forms and notifications. Including:
District Minibus booking
Online NAN form
Adventurous activities permit
Good Service Award nomination
