Adult awards

Adults in Scouting are amazing, they give up their time to volunteer in so many ways to help provide Skills for life for the 5,000+ young people involved in Scouting across the whole of Gloucestershire.

We want to make sure that these adults know that they are valued and recognised for their amazing work.

To support this we utilise The Scout Association Adult Award scheme which includes awards for good service, outstanding service, meritorious conduct and gallantry.

Nominating adults for awards

If you would like to nominate an adult in Scouting for a Good Service award such as the Commissioners Commendation, Chief Scouts Commendation or the award for merit, please visit the Scouts webpage that describes the award scheme and the critera for the awards.

If you would like to continue, download and complete a copy of this form and send it to your local District Awards Advisory Panel or your District Commissioner.

There is useful guidance on completing a nomination here.

Gloucestershire County Award

The Gloucestershire County Award acknowledges ‘outstanding’ contributions to Scouting in Gloucestershire – usually by non-uniformed persons at group and district level. 

The awards are normally presented to those who deserve recognition of their contributions but who, for whatever reason, do not fall within the criteria for an award. The awards will normally be presented annually at the Gloucestershire county AGM.
