Whether a young person wanting new adventures, or a parent who’s looking for new interests for their child, an adult who wants to volunteer or help out in some way, or, an organisation who wants to work with us, we want to hear from you.

Young people

As a young person, Scouts is a place to have fun, make new friends, learn new skills and have the kind of adventures that you can't have anywhere else.

Depending on your age, young people can join Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts or Scout Network.
If you’re under 14, you’ll need to get your parent or carer to register your interest in becoming a Scout.


Volunteering for The Scout Association is easy, fun, offers opportunities to get externally-recognised qualifications, and gives you the chance to have a real impact on the development of young people.
How much time you give is up to you, and whatever role you choose, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported.

Donate and raise funds

Another way you can help Scouting is by donating money or helping us with fundraising. You can also bequeath money to Scouting in your will, or become one of our corporate partners or sponsors.

Every contribution, large or small, helps to make sure that as many young people as possible have access to everyday adventure.
