Asset Recovery Incentivisation Scheme (ARIS) Grant Awarded

Date: 13th Jan 2023 Author: Anthony Boggiano

Manchester South District Scout Council is pleased to advise that we have successfully bid for a grant of £15,000 to assist the entry into Scouts of those young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who may not have previously been able to participate in Scouting on the grounds of cost.

This grant will allow up to 100 young people affected by these circumstances to join their local south Manchester Scout group and take part in the extensive Scouting programme that all of the groups in Manchester South District run.

Many thanks to GMP and their ARIS scheme and we will ensure the funds are put to good use.
