Over the past few weeks we have been challenged in so many ways. Many of us will be missing our friends and family members, not to mention just being able to go outside and enjoy the sunshine. Even with these challenges many of you have been sharing the amazing Scouting fun you’ve been having both virtually on line and in your homes .

Please visit the
Programmes at Home web page or the Scouting at Home Facebook page, to find new ideas or to find activities for you to do at home. 

Scouts can make this world a lot smaller and hopefully, just a little better! Please remember , whatever you’re doing , please stay at home and look after each other .

We prepare young people with skills for life

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills. 

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

What do Scouts do?

Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.
