Our impact and reports
Throughout the year, various reports are issued to measure Scouting's performance and impact on its members and the communities they serve.
The annual review and impact report are issued shortly after the Annual General Meeting.
Scouting is a movement, and to live up to the name, we have our strategy Skills for Life to set the direction of how we want our members to feel.
We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things and enrich their lives.
Each week over 400,000 young people and 100,000 adult volunteers take part in Scouting projects and activities at the heart of the UK's communities. It is our role to ensure that every one of our members has the facilities, needs and support to take part in these activities safely.
The Scout Experience Survey
Every year we complete the Scout Experience Survey to see the difference which Scouts makes to our young people, as well as giving us a valuable insight into our adult volunteers and their thoughts and experiences.
Gender pay gap
For the staff employed by The Scout Association we have a statutory requirement to report specific information on our pay levels based on gender. On data for 334 staff from our March 2019 payroll the following data has been compiled, verified and reported.
Difference in hourly rate
Women earn £1.06 for every £1 that men earn when comparing median hourly wages. Their median hourly wage is 6% higher than men’s.
When comparing mean hourly wages, women’s mean hourly wage is 0.8% lower than men’s.
Proportion of women in each pay quarter
In this organisation, women occupy 59.3% of the highest paid jobs and 56.3% of the lowest paid jobs.
