Media & Communications

Our Media Development Team improve the public image of local Scouting. We seek out and identify local good news stories happening in Scouting and promote these to the local media contacts.

We get involved with local Scouting large camps, competitions and interesting events. We can help promote your event beforehand, take photographs and collate stories to publish on social media feeds during the event and send reports to local media contacts afterwards. If you are organising an event and would like our help, please get in touch with us using the form at the bottom of this page.

How can we help you?

Our dedicated NEScouts Media Team will work with you and put together all you need, and we will even use our media contacts directly into the press.
