Gain skills for life

Building better futures for all

Scouts are do-ers... and give-it-a-go-ers.

Scouts made me question and listen and have a wideopen mind. Scouts made me take a deep breath and speak up. Made me think on my feet, made me see the big picture, made me ignore the butterflies and go for it. Scouts made me get back up and try again. Made me think about what’s next, and plan for it. Made me jump in, get muddy, give back and get set.

We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Every week we give almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

We question and listen and form wide open minds. We take a deep breath and speak up. We think on our feet. See the big picture. Ignore the butterflies and go for it.

We get back up and try again. We think about what’s next, and plan for it. We jump in, get muddy, give back and get set.

Sounds fun? Why don’t you find out for yourself, give it a go and join us today.

Volunteer

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Groups week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills.
