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.

Annual report

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.

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 2017 payroll the following data has been compiled, verified and reported.

At The Scout Assocation, the representation of women and men across all organisational levels has meant that:

Difference in hourly rate

Women’s median hourly rate is 1.1% higher than men’s

Women’s mean hourly rate is 3.1% lower than men’s 

Proportion of women in each pay quartile
