Making a

difference

We are the largest mixed volunteer-led Movement for young people in Scotland. We offer fun, challenge and life changing adventure to almost 40,000 young people in Scotland, who are supported by over 8,000 adult volunteers.

Scouting exists to make young people’s lives better, helping them to realise their full potential, and providing them with the skills they need to succeed in life.

I can’t believe how much I have achieved in just a year, and can’t wait to see where else Scouts takes me!

Scouting in Scotland

In Scotland, Scouting is administered by Scouts Scotland, a registered Scottish Charity No. SC017511, affiliated to The Scout Association (UK).

The UK Scout Association has delegated responsibility for the management of the affairs of The Scout Association in Scotland to Scouts Scotland, with specific responsibilities for programme, training, and administration.

Scouts Scotland is dedicated to making sure that Scouting in Scotland remains safe, fun and relevant for young people, and that the Scouting Programme is properly delivered.

 

As there are variations in legal, educational and national affairs in Scotland, Scouts Scotland publishes its own Scottish Variations to The Scout Association's Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR), and supports groups to comply.

Scouting in Scotland is organised on a regional and local level, ensuring that each Group has nearby support and assistance in providing the best Scouting experiences possible for their members.
