How we manage our centres…

We see running our Centres as a core part of what we do as Hertfordshire Scouts, and we are constantly working to find creative ways to provide even more support for leaders and opportunities for young people.

Our Centres not only contribute directly to the programme, but also make a significant financial contribution each year towards the running of Hertfordshire Scouts.

The in County Centres are managed by the Activity Centres Management Committee, formed of our Centre Managers and Trustee Members, supported by professional HR, Health & Safety and Finance advisors.

Lochearnhead has a dedicated Management Committee, reflecting the specialist nature of the facilities and activities it has on offer and the differences between Scottish and English law.

Both Committees are chaired by a Trustee and report to our County Executive.
