The District Trustee Board plays a vital role in the running of any Scout District. The Trustee Board exists to support the District Lead Volunteer in meeting the responsibilities of their appointment.
Trustee Boards make decisions and carry out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality Scouting can be delivered to young people in the District.

Ex-officio Trustees have a role on the Trustee Board due to their role in Scouting.

Nominated Trustees are nominated by the District Lead Volunteer in partnership with the District Chair and approved at the Annual General Meeting; there must be no more nominated trustees than elected trustees.
Co-opted Trustees are chosen to take on a role by the District Trustee Board due to specific skills or knowledge useful to the Trustee Board; there must be no more co-opted Trustees than elected Trustees.
