Over 80 Scouts got the opportunity to grill a senior MP and member of the Shadow Cabinet at the first ever Scouts Question Time.

Around 5,6000 young people turned up at Gilwell Park last weekend for our annual Beaver and Cub Fundays

The education select committee published its findings on services for young people on Thursday. The committee gathered evidence from a range of national and local organisations that work with young people.

The search has begun for this year’s recipients of Scout Birthday Badges.

A group of Cub Scouts held the first ever Pack meeting in Parliament to promote Volunteers’ Week.

On 7 June, Chief Scout Bear Grylls is donating his birthday in support of our campaign to raise £30,000 for a new climbing tower and safety equipment at Woodhouse Park National Activity Centre.

It’s Volunteers’ Week so there’s no better time for you to join our team of exceptional volunteers and make a real difference to young people’s lives.

Since the quest was started to find 8,000 bearers for the London 2012 Olympic Torch, it’s clear that Scouting has a legion of unsung heroes to nominate for selection.

This weekend 920 adults from across the United Kingdom came together at Gilwell Park to share their hopes for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden.

A pilot project has been a roaring success with Groups performing tasks to improve their local areas and the lives of those who live there.
