About Us

What we do…

As Scouts, we prepare young people with skills for life. We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, the Scouts help over 460,000 young people across the UK aged 4-18 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills. We believe in bringing people together.
