Scouts help young people develop active listening skills

New research from the Scouts shows that better listening, and listening more often, are the keys to a more cohesive society and a better working environment. Significantly, it has also revealed that more than 9 out of 10 UK adults believe that Scouts helps young people to develop these crucial listening skills.

YouGov polled over 2,000 adults for the research, which revealed that 87% of adults who expressed a view believe that UK society would be more cohesive if people took more time to actively listen to each other. Despite this, some 86% of adults said we don't listen to each other enough.
