Development is all about growing Hampshire Scouts, an unstoppable force for good, and teaching more young people the essential skills they need for life.
There are many ways to develop the movement, which include:
- Create a development plan for your District or Group
- Support with the recruitment of adult volunteers
- Assistance with the opening of new sections
- Support new Group Scout Leaders
- Help District Commissioners in their role
In short, if our plans intend to enrich or extend the experience people have of the Scouts, it's development! Take a look at some examples of the great work our Growth & Development team undertake

Quality scouting for more young people, that's what growing the Scouts is all about!
Together, we aim to provide places for as many young people in our local communities as we can. To do this, we need to develop and grow Scouting at every opportunity.
Our development service is a central part of our county approach to support scouting in Groups and Districts. The service is steered by the Growth, Retention and Development Committee, who report to the County Leadership Team.
