My child has a disability – will this be a problem?

Is there a cost? 
Our Membership Subscription is amazing value for money. It does not cover all the running expenses of the Scout Group and we rely upon our parents’ support by fundraising to cover the balance of our expenses as well as providing for extras such as new and replacement equipment.
