Join The Adventure…
We are part of the Scout Association the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation which every year helps over 500,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential. 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 in communities.
Scouts develop skills including:
- Time management
- Cultural awareness
We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world. There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability.
The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section we cover a range of badges and awards that support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. Our programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.
What Can Adults do?
This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
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.
