About Spearhead Active Support Unit

Spearhead Active Support Unit delivers and supports a number of technologies that enable Milton Keynes Scouts. Whether it’s Office365 for email and file storage, or WordPress for websites, if it involves a keyboard or a browser, it’s probably our fault.

We’re also taking on responsibility for any training that falls outside of the Scout Training Team mandate. So we’re expanding the team to deliver training on the technical tools we have available to us to support our adult volunteers and young people better.
