As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.
We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 across the UK 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. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
Our values are at the heart of who we are and what we do:
We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no-one’s watching), and we stay true to ourselves.
We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
We’re kind to others, looking after the world we live in.
We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds.
We work with others to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.
