Welcome everyone.. the website for the parents of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Scouting is all about fun, challenges and adventure. Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouting develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences. Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

Gift Aid is a tax relief set up by the Government to enable charities to claim back 25p for every eligible £1 donation that is made to your charity. Every Group, District and County/Area/Scottish Region and The Scouts HQ itself is a charity and so they’re able to claim 25% on eligible donations made to them by UK taxpayers.

You're in Good Hands.

When I became Chief Scout in 2009, it was one of the proudest moments of my life.

With every passing day since, I've become even more inspired by the dedication of our leaders and volunteers, who tirelessly prepare young people with skills for life.
