The UK Contingent are driving a large focus on inclusion for the South Korea World Scout Jamboree.

Essentially, the World Scout Jamboree is open for applications from all Scout members of the correct age, and these are encouraged from everybody.

To assist with financial inclusion, each county has been asked to review their financial inclusion process, and we have now done this in Hampshire.

Hampshire will be using a specific grant fund to assist participant applications via its grant committee. Grants of varying levels of up to 50% could be available for those most in need of assistance.

We are now in state Green which means that activities can proceed as in normal times

Residential activities are no longer limited to six people sharing accommodation. This means more flexibility for you when planning your nights away activities, although you should still be managing the spread of COVID-19. We’ve updated our guidance to explain that members who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days (but are outside of the isolation period) are no longer required to undertake lateral flow testing in order to take part. We’re aware that is could generate false positives and prevent participation.
