A Million Hands

If you read the next column, and look at the official web site, that tells us and gives us ideas of how we get can involved more in our communities.  We already do a lot by cleaning the war memorial, attending village shows, occasionally attending the local church.
 
However a Million Hands is a little bit more than that as you can see.  Out of the four areas the National Association has partnered with, the easiest issue for us to pick up would be Disability, for two reasons, one our link with Ashmount and two the skills some of our adult volunteers have around  working with kids with special needs.  This should enable the project to become a slight extension of what we already do without too much extra work.  I have asked one of adult volunteers to manage this project so hopefully we will be able to move this forward in the next few months.

FROM THE SCOUT ASSOCIATION
 
About A Million Hands
 
We want to mobilise half a million Scouts in support of four social issues chosen by our young people. From dementia to those disabled by society, from improving the mental wellbeing and resilience of our communities to ensuring everyone, everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation…These are big issues of our time, but our young people want to tackle them head on.
 
Our aim is to build real and lasting relationships in communities that will enable young people to continue taking social action long into the future. We are marrying our Movement of over half a million people, reaching into every community across the UK, with the knowledge and expertise of organisations committed to social change.
 
By providing you with high quality Resource Packs, access to local support and activities completely aligned with existing badges and awards within the 6-25 Programme, we want to help our young people keep their promise to help other people.
