What are some of the benefits of Scouting for your child and your family?
There is no doubt that parents value what Scouting does for their children.
In an independent survey of over 2,000 parents of Scouts, 9 out of 10 parents said Scouting is worthwhile (7 in 10 very worthwhile) and 9 in 10 said their children find Scouting enjoyable (6 in 10 very enjoyable).
Parents say Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue things they might not get to do otherwise, adventure and an extended family.
I would welcome all children and parents who are interested to come and find out more about what we do and what your child can get out of scouting.

Scouting is a world-wide educational Movement for young people. It contributes to the fulfilment of their potential using a progressive and enjoyable values-based programme for personal development.
Incorporated as a charity by Royal Charter in 1912, The Scout Association seeks to provide young people with opportunities to participate in adventurous outdoor activities, learn team-building skills and develop new friendships. It is firmly committed to co-education so that boys and girls can develop together and meet the aims of Scouting through one programme.
Membership is open to all young people and adults, regardless of ability, who are prepared to accept Scouting’s fundamental principles. Today, there are over half a million adults and young people enjoying the fun and friendship of Scouting in the United Kingdom and over 30 million throughout the world.
The aim of the Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
The Method of achieving the Aim of the Association is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by adult leadership.
