An Introduction to Scouting
The Scouts is the UK’s largest youth organisation and we believe in preparing young people with skills fo life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.
Every week, we give almost 1000 young people, aged 6-25 in Wyre the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the trick challenge and the big dreams; the skills they need for life.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts an 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.

In Scouting, our volunteers have a responsibility to make sure that the activities young people do are fun and exciting. We also make sure that they are safe. The Scout Association’s policies, rules, code of behaviour, advice on Child Protection and safety policy are there to ensure our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves are learn. You can view those policies, here.
