As Scouts, we believe in empowering young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

We question and listen and form wide open minds. We take a deep breath and speak up. We think on our feet. See the big picture. Ignore the butterflies and go for it. We get back up and try again. We think about what’s next, and plan for it. We jump in, get muddy, give back and get set. We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Every week we give thousands of 4-25-year olds across Scotland the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

We make a big difference. You could too.

Our Structure

Our Headquarters operation is based at Fordell Firs, just outside Dunfermline and we have three Scout Adventures Centres across Scotland. We have staff based in offices, at the centres, and working from home. Operationally we work in four teams: Scouting Operations, Communications and Fundraising, Finance and Central Services, and Outdoor and Adventure.

Our Impact

Society is changing. In often fragmented communities, the pressures and expectations on young people are increasing. Scouts has never been so important in helping young people prepare for the future, developing the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Each week, throughout the UK, almost half a million young people enjoy fun, friendship and outdoor adventure. They develop a sense of optimism and strong values as well as the leadership and team working skills that are more valuable today than ever.

We’re focusing on recovery and regrowth, making sure that our volunteers and young people have the support that they need.
Our Skills for Life strategy supports and empowers our volunteers who are the people that make Scouts a reality. It’s a strategy to bring communities together and contribute towards a better society. But most of all, it’s a strategy for young people. They deserve the best skills, the best support, and the best possible futures.
