Your Baden Powell Support Team

An important outcome from the Rover Review Implementation Team is the formation of your Baden Powell Scout Award Support Team, a national network of members empowered to support your progress through the award scheme.

What Is RRIT?

The Rover Review Implementation Team (RRIT) is a group which was created as a result of the recommendations of the Rover Review; Rovering Toward 2020.

This team, made up of current and recently booted Rovers is tasked with working on the finer details of some of the Review recommendations and preparing them for implementation.
