As Scouts, we believe in providing young people with skills for life. That’s why we encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Each week, we give over 450,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership, Independence and resilience –skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

By 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme. We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities. We are proud to say we are a values-based movement. Our Scout values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation guide everything we do.

Scouting offers a wide variety of roles to suit all interests, whether working directly with young people, managing others, running a specific activity or even helping maintain Meeting places. You'll also rediscover your adventure while contributing to your community and developing your own skills.

550 young people are involved in Scouting in Sunderland each week, in Groups located through out the City it could be more, with your help.

That's not all, you will personally benefit from a variety of interesting and challenging experiences whilst meeting new people and having fun.
