Help others

Throughout our history, Scouts have helped other people and supported their communities in times of crisis

The uplifting side of the current health crisis is that so many people want to help, including young people. We’re regularly asking our young people what they think is the most important action they could take safely over the next few weeks.

Care for care homes

Show you 'care for care homes' and be a part of the 10,000 acts of kindness we want to show care homes over the next few weeks!

It’s important to address what’s happened, talk about any concerns and acknowledge that things may be different now, but that Scouts will continue.
