Activities that are good for everyone

"It’s a fantastic way to give young people some of the skills I have learnt. It’s therapy I have been able to continue scouts through some very difficult times."

Beryl, Active Support Unit/Cub Scout Leader

"Meeting new people and teaching life skills also offering opportunities to children that they may not have at home."

Michelle, Beaver Leader
