Awards for Good Service

There are a number of Good Service awards available to adults in the Scouting movement.

The Chief Scout’s Commendation for Good Service is given in respect of not less than 5 years good service, which stands out.  It should be regarded as the Chief Scout’s recognition of the very real contribution made to the Association by the individual concerned.

The Award for Merit is given for outstanding service of not less than 12 years and 10 years exceptionally.  It implies keen, conscientious, imaginative and dedicated service over a sustained period.

The Bar to the Award for Merit may be awarded after a period of not less than five years of further outstanding service.

The Chief Scout’s Personal Award is awarded by the Chief Scout, in consultation with the Awards Board to recognise achievement not covered by the criteria for any other awards. It may be accompanied, where appropriate, with a suitable commemorative item.

The Thanks Badge is the means of expressing the appreciation of the Association to those who are not Members or Associate Members but who have been of service to Scouting and is available through Badge Secretaries.

For more information about award requirements and how to apply, see the form below.

The Alec Webster Oates Scout Fund

Application Form Notes and Grant Criteria

The Alec Oates fund was established in 1943 in memory of a member of the 36th Sheffield (Ranmoor) Scout Group who was killed on Active service in the RAF.

The fund was added to with additional legacies and donations in memory of:

  • Reg Bruce of Don District,
  • Derek Breakey and Roger Sanderson of Rivelin District and
  • Reg Guion and John Hall of Sheaf District.

The fund was established to provide financial assistance for camping to scouts in poor circumstances in Sheffield. It is now considered that camping includes all forms of overnight activities and that “scouts” includes all invested members of the Scout movement.
