Supporting local Scouting

Our nations staff teams and Regional Services Team support key line managers in growing and developing Scouting at a local level. We work with existing and new volunteers to enable more young people to benefit from the opportunities, skills and adventures which Scouting offers.

The teams are experts at growth and development and support local Scouting to:

  • Induct key line managers
  • Recruit and retain volunteers and youth members
  • Support communities to open new Scouting provision
  • Ensure the sustainability of existing Scouting provision

Support is available through the Growing Scouts pages as well as providing tailored local support in five key areas. You can read more details about the support on offer below and request support using the links to your nation on this page. If in doubt, get in touch and one of the team will get back to you to find out more.
