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.
