We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here - all genders, races and backgrounds. We give over 400,000 4-25 year olds the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview: the skills they need for life.

Right across the UK, we’re helping young people gain skills for life and find their place in the world. We help them speak up, play their part and shine bright. Scouts is the place to be yourself and find yourself.

These are young people who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in, to do the right thing and think of others before themselves.

At a time when communities sometimes feel divided, Scouts brings people together. We’re building stronger communities and contributing to a stronger society. All this is made possible by the generosity of our adult volunteers. Now is a challenging time for us all, but Scouts has never been more important giving young people purpose, hope and a place to belong. With the launch of Squirrels for 4-6 year olds, and opening more units in even more areas of deprivation we’re making more of a difference than ever.
