Today's young children have spent up to half their lives in lockdown

As a result their opportunities have been sadly limited. Scouts builds life-long friendships, provides new experiences, and develops #SkillsForLife for young people across the UK. 

What Scouts are doing

In September 2021 Scouts launched Squirrels, a programme specially designed for 4–6 year olds. This is a key stage in their social and emotional development, when vital connections are being made in the brainSince launch over 300 Squirrel Dreys have been set up in local communities. However, we need your help to reach families in the most disadvantaged parts of the UK.

How you can make a difference with a donation

  • £5 could help young people go into their communities and do a good deed, like carol singing with music sheets and festive hats
  • £10 could get our youngest members going with their first book packs to create a storybook corner

All donations will be doubled thanks to the support of the #iwill fund
