Public benefits

The direct benefit which flows from our purpose is that young people are empowered to make a positive contribution to society through being engaged and supported in their personal development, including physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. This benefit is demonstrated through Scouting making a positive impact in our communities;

preparing young people to be active citizens; embracing and contributing to social change; being as diverse as the communities in which we operates. These are evidenced by feedback from our beneficiaries and the wider community. In addition, benefits are demonstrated by getting feedback from young people and parents, using the Plan, Do, Review Model for assessing programmes and events and from time to time independent evaluations of our activities. In providing these services there is no known harm flowing from the purpose of Scouting Ireland. The benefits of this purpose are provided to children, young people and volunteers without distinction of origin, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or ability, in Northern Ireland. The private benefit flowing from this purpose is gained by a volunteer undertaking training and gaining transferable skills and staff members who are paid. These benefits are necessary to ensure the benefit is provided to our beneficiaries, the young people who are members.

The provision of a wide range of attractive, constructive and challenging activities, including opportunities for adventure and exploration both indoors and outdoors. d. The provision of opportunities for leadership and responsibility. e. Learning by doing. f. Encouragement of activity in small groups. g. An award scheme, which encourages participation in its full range of activities and provides recognition of individual and group achievements. h. Symbolic Framework.
