Organisational information

There are about 500,000 people involved in Scouting in the UK. What goes on at local level is what drives us, and we support all this activity with an extensive local and national volunteer structure, and a small number of paid staff.

We are continually reviewing and trying to improve the quality of the experience that we provide for young people, and this goes for everyone from local Scout leaders right up to national Headquarters.

We're keen for all our members to be up to speed with everything we're doing and planning, so each year we produce both an annual report of all our recent activity, and also an impact report, where we try to measure the effect that our work is having in communities across the UK.
