What we do

Every year we help 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.

Why get involved

'Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. This is what I love about Scouting.

'It’s about doing great things, loving and enjoying the great adventures and helping others to do the same.'

Bear Grylls
Chief Scout
