We really hope that you have found this handbook useful and will continue to refer to it as you journey through your role as a manger in scouting. Hopefully on the journey so far you have been able to pick up some really useful tips and obtain advice and support from various sources, whether it is face-to-face, telephone or a friendly email.
It's always good to know that you are not alone, and it is important in the role to maintain those links. By now you will have some idea as to what you see the vision for your group to be, you will have the adults in the group on board and making suggestions as to how the vision will happen. What do you want the group to look like in three years’ time? Will it have expanded numbers of both adults and young people?
You may very well be on target and already have a vision and, from there, a plan in place. That's great! But don't worry if the group is not there yet; it doesn't mean that you have failed. It might be that the group had other priorities that couldn't wait and, therefore, you just haven't had the time.
It is also important to point out that no two group scout leaders manage in the same way; everyone is different and different methods will work for each; you have to find what works best for you and your team.
Thank you for everything you have done so far, and more importantly for everything that you are going to do to help grow and ensure we provide better scouting for more young people (and adults)! Relax, have fun and enjoy the experience.
