Why we work together

We thrilled to be partners with Nominet, together we aim to equip our Scouts with the inspiration, skills and knowledge to be positive, active, citizens both online and offline.


What do you think about the new badge requirements for the Digital Citizen Staged Activity Badge?

We're looking back to understand more about how the badge and activities have been used since it was updated, and what this has meant to the Scouts who have accessed it. 

If you've used the badge before, we'd appreciate your help by completing this short survey, which will take around 5 minutes to complete.

Please click here to fill in the survey.

We're looking to come and visit!
