Alternative Promise

Scouts is open to people of all faiths as well as people who are humanist, atheist or have no affirmed faith. Therefore, nobody has to talk about God in their Promise. Similarly, people of other nationalities resident in the United Kingdom who become Scouts owe allegiance to their own country – not ours.
