Scouts are the UK's biggest mixed youth organization. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure, and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact on communities.
Join Scouting Today
The Scout Association offers fun and everyday adventure to 500,000 young people between the ages of 6 and 25 across the United Kingdom.
The main goal is to help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens, and as Members of their local, national and international communities.
Even if we can’t solve all the problems in the world, we can help to make it a better place. Scouting makes a positive contribution to society by helping young people to develop as active members of the community:
– Who are self-reliant
– Who is caring
– Who are responsible
– Who show commitment
Scouting works well when young people enjoy learning by working in partnership with adults.
They do this by:
– Taking part in a variety of activities and new experiences
– Exploring the outdoors
– Participating in teams
Our method for giving young people the opportunity to learn by doing is called the Programme. The Programme is a continuous progression of training, activities, and awards that covers everything that young people do in Scouting from the age of 6 to 25.
Our Scout Values
Integrity- We act with integrity we are honest, trustworthy and loyal
Respect- We have self-respect and respect for others
Care- We support others and take care of the world in which we live in
Belief- We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes
Co-operation- We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others anmd make friends
In Scouting, our adults have a responsibility to make sure that the Programme is fun and exciting. We must also make sure that it is safe. The Scout Association’s policies, rules, code of behaviour, advice on Child Protection and safety policy are there to ensure our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves and learn. All adults and Volunteers have up to date Safeguarding and Child Protection Training along with having an upto date DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Certificate.
