In this modern age, technology is a fundamental part of any organisation. This new department has been set up to provide for your needs. The scope of my work includes giving advice on any IT related subjects including websites, electronic presentations and hardware and to provide training where necessary for both leaders and young people.

Keeping children safe is paramount to the Scouting association, so it only seems right that we work to keep our young people safe through electronic means, such as online, mobile telephones and other electronic means. Dorset Scouts can arrange to have leaders trained, or you can request one of our trained staff to teach your young people how to stay safe. This programme is called Think You Know, please visit the information pages.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Alex Holt, County Advisor for Technology
