What we do

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn
more and be more.
Each week, we give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to 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 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.
By 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring
programme. We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.
We are proud to say we are a values-based movement. Our Scout values of integrity, respect, care, belief and
cooperation guide everything we do.

‘Survival can be summed up in three words – never give up.’
