Nationally, Scouting is the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. Offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities. This is achieved when young people, work inpartnership with adults, inspired by the values of Scouting.
Scouting helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouting develops skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

everyday adventure, fun and friendship.
