About Horsham District Scout Council

Horsham District Scouts is part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

We believe in preparing young people with skills for life.

We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, more than 1400 young people in the Horsham area aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. 

Through our dedicated adult volunteers we enable develop teamwork, leadership and resilience in young people – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills. 

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance.

Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.

Paul Dold Memorial Artificial Cave Project

The artificial cave project is a vision inspired by the late Paul Dold, who sadly lost his life in 2016. Paul was a very active member of Horsham District Scouts and was himself a Cub, Scout, Venture Scout, Leader and Group Scout Leader. Paul was also a member of the South East Cave Rescue Organisation (SECRO) and a proud recipient of the Jubilee medal for services to caving. Scouting introduced Paul to caving and Paul dreamt of building a training facility to introduce and teach caving to the next generation of scouts.
Mission and Project PlanOur mission is to build an Artificial cave system at the Horsham District Scout Campsite in memory of Paul. Phase One has now been completed with planning permission obtained in 2018 and the project fully costed.
We are now fundraising to support the implementation of the next two phases. Phase Two involves ground works and construction of the metal building and Phase Three involves the purchase and installation of the specialist Artificial cave system from one of the UK's leading suppliers.
Fundraising PlanThe project is costed at £110k, with approximately £20k already raised. We aim to raise funds through a wide range of fun and innovative individual and Group activities and by applying for grants, charitable donations and corporate sponsorship.
This project will provide Horsham District Scouts with the opportunity to encourage young people to challenge themselves cognitively, emotionally and physically and to develop partnerships and links with other local communities and services.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
