The Nationwide Scout Communications Team is a group of volunteers with communications knowledge, experience and equipment, which enable us to provide specialist communications and command and control solutions to the Scout Association, Guide Association and other community and charity organisations. We are able to support your event with a variety of communications solutions and can assist at both large and small events.

We are organised as a National Active Support Unit with the majority of our members made up from Scout Leaders in Birmingham and the greater West Midlands although as a National Team  we do have members throughout the UK.

There are a number of Scout Communications Teams across the United Kingdom and, if your event is a local event, you should, in the first instance, contact your local team for support. Our Team covers the greater Midlands area, Wales and provides communications support to Headquarters Events National Events and events at Gilwell Park.
