Scout Pride

We believe in bringing people together.

Scouts welcomes everyone, regardless of gender identity or sexuality. To help celebrate the inclusion and diversity we’re so proud of, we're really pleased to be back out in the community supporting and attending Pride events across the nations in 2023.

Why Scouts attend Pride

Attending Pride events is a way of demonstrating our commitment to building a more inclusive society and openly welcoming LGBT+ members. We’ve been attending Pride events around the UK for a number of years.

We have a clear Equality, Diversion and Inclusion Policy and attend Pride events to demonstrate our commitment to equality.

We have staff and volunteers specialising in equality, diversity and inclusion, including our National Inclusion Team volunteers. We even a national unit supporting LGBT+ adults in Scouts called FLAGS.
