Uniform Report

We are proud to bring you the findings and recommendations of the National Youth Council’s report in to the Australian Scout Uniform! Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who provided their opinions and feedback through our two surveys and Facebook events, we were absolutely thrilled to be able to present the opinions of so many Scouts!!

The process for this report is very, very far from being over. We are arranging for Chris (NYC Chair) and Annie (Frankston PL) to meet with David Jones, the Chairman of the National Executive Committee, and with Snowgum to discuss all of the practicalities of these recommendations. We’ll then have to take the recommendations and the information about their feasibility and practicalities to the national decision-making teams. Please remember that the report is only about what we found, it isn’t a promise that any of the recommendations will be implemented. We are however making a promise to keep you informed of how all of the next steps go!

The report’s pretty long and a bit heavy, so we made some videos to explain what we did, what we said, and where to from here.

  1. I think you should delete or re-do the 1st video. Too much irrelevent info,giggling, hand waving etc. You could probably say what you need to in a lot less time.

    • Thanks for the feedback Maxine! We’re slowly moving all our old reports and things over to this website so that people can find them in the future, this was actually all originally posted a year ago. It was our first attempt at a video and we definitely learnt a lot from doing it, and we’re still continuing to learn! So the feedback is great so that we know what to do for our future ones, but I don’t think we’ll be making another video for this report – it’s all old news anyway!

      Chris – NYC Chair
