The Founder of Scouting had a vision from which a movement has grown, so that Scouting is found today in every corner of the land. The purpose of Scouting is to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
These skills for life are developed through participation in a programme, underpinned by our method, and delivered principally in Squirrel Drays, Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Explorer Units and Scout Networks. The programme in each of these sections is delivered by a volunteer section leadership team working in partnership with the young people in their section.
The function of all the other volunteers within our movement is to support the delivery and quality of those programmes in each of our sections.
With approximately 7,500 Scout Groups in the United Kingdom and its dependent territories, a support structure is clearly necessary.
