The Scouts' style guide

This style guide is intended to promote accuracy and consistency throughout the Scouts' written communications. It aims to encourage a recognisable family style, and establish standard good practice. The style guide should be regarded as a set of guidelines and not a straitjacket. It is not intended to ‘cramp your style,’ but rather introduce commonality in areas where practice previously varied. It also offers best practice guides for writing for the web and guides to uploading content to the website.
