Our programmes of work

Due to the impact of COVID-19, our Skills for Life strategy has been extended until 2025.

These are the six programmes of work that’ll help us to achieve this strategy:

People, Programme, Perception, Digital, Early Years, and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

We’re involving people on the ground every step of the way in the updated strategy, to make sure anything new works for the majority and genuinely make things better, easier and more fun.


More, well trained, better supported and motivated adult volunteers and young people, from diverse backgrounds.

Early years

Provide more young people with skills for life through a new section for four and five year olds. 


A fun, enjoyable, high quality programme consistently delivered and supported by simple (digital) tools.


Embedding our digital principles and transforming the Scouts experience with better digital tools.


Scouts is clearly understood, more visible, trusted, respected, and widely seen as playing a key role in today’s society.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Changing the way we think and do things so that we can become a movement that gives everyone what they need to thrive.
