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. The benefits are also identified by the consistent numbers of beavers, cubs and scouts engaging in activities, and attending section meetings, county and camp events. In providing these services there is no known harm flowing from the purpose of Scouting Ireland. Those that benefit are the volunteers but this is as a result of the necessary skills training that has to be undertaken to meet the needs of the scout group.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
