Ben Dickinson

Hi, I'm Ben, I'm currently in my third year studying maths at Durham! I have been in scouting since Beavers and never left. I have been in SSAGO for just over 2 years and have been on DUSAGG's committee for both of those! I was also Publicity Officer for Viking Rally, which if you haven't heard about, I'm sure Bjørn will tell you about. Outside of SSAGO, I am a member of SAGGA, an Explorer Scout Leader and District Scout Network Commissioner, among other roles.
As Active Support Officer, I am responsible for maintaining everyone's compass records, ensuring everyone has the necessary DBS checks and other compass related things. Feel free to contact me if you have something to discuss!

  • Getting Started: I have just started the role, I had my introduction meeting and look forward to starting everything!


  • Mascot: I need to find a mascot (suggestions welcome)
  • Compass: I will probably spend a decent amount of time working out how compass actually works!
