Help us get to the 2019 World Scout Jamboree

I want to meet other Autistic Scouts from around the World.

Thomas has Asperger's Syndrome which affects his ability to socialise and make friends. Scouting has opened up his world since he began as a Beaver Scout in 2011. He is now 12 and readily admits that being a Scout has provided him with lots of opportunities to explore his Autism. Thomas has been selected to attend the 2019 World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. Only 54 Scouts from the whole of Central Yorkshire have been chosen to go.

This is the chance of a lifetime for any Scout, but for Thomas, it will give him confidence and a unique experience to enjoy Scouting with others from around the world.

Thomas will need support when he attends the Jamboree. The UK contingent have kindly agreed to allow full time adult support to accompany him but each attendee must raise £3,800 in order to go. That means that for Thomas and his Carer to attend, we must raise £7,600.

It's a big fee. It's a big ask. Please help. Every pound will make a difference.

Thank you
