Inclusivity

Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000

Description

3rd Tewkesbury Scout Group provides fun and adventure for young people between the ages of 6 and 14 years in the Tewkesbury area.

We are part of the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 14-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities. Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

Scouting is entirely inclusive and we welcome children and young people of all backgrounds and abilities, encouraging everyone to be the best version of themselves.

However, our much loved Scout Hut on Oldbury Road is no longer entirely suited to this fabulous cause and we need your help to bring it up to date – no effort involved! For more than 60 years the Scout Hut has been at the centre of our community and we want to ensure it stays that way. We're already working on a project, and fundraising, to replace some significant structural parts of the building, however our accessible toilet facilities do not meet current standards - that means we're unable to offer the flexibility required to be completely inclusive for future Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The project will see the current tired and tatty toilet completely transformed into an accessible facility suitable for future generations of Tewkesbury kids – of all abilities. We need to win the Aviva Community Fund competition to finance the purchase of the toilet, sink, fixtures and fittings, installation, tiling and plumbing. We haven't included any pictures of the toilet, because, well, its a toilet!

By voting for our project in the Aviva Community Fund competition you’ll be helping our volunteer leaders, parents and committee provide the flexibility required to be completely inclusive for future Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in Tewkesbury!

Thank you!
