As Scouts, our commitment is to empower young individuals with essential life skills. We inspire them to embrace more, learn more, and become more.

Every week, we provide over 450,000 young people in the UK with opportunities to relish in fun and adventure while honing crucial skills for success. These encompass teamwork, leadership, independence, and resilience attributes that have propelled Scouts into diverse professions, ranging from educators and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

Our philosophy centres around unity, celebrating diversity, and staunchly opposing intolerance. As a global movement, we contribute to forging resilient communities and igniting optimistic futures.

Looking ahead to 2024, our goal is to equip even more young minds with life skills. This vision is supported by dedicated leaders who deliver an inspiring program. We aim to expand our reach, enhance exclusivity, be moulded by the perspectives of young people, and amplify our impact within communities. Our identity as a values driven movement is a source of pride, with integrity, respect, care, belief, and cooperation serving as guiding principles.

Scouting offers a diverse array of roles tailored to various interests whether it's direct interaction with young people, leadership management, organizing specific activities, or contributing to the upkeep of meeting places. Engaging with Scouting not only allows you to rediscover the spirit of adventure but also enables you to contribute to your community and enhance your personal skills.

Currently, 550 young individuals actively participate in Scouting in Sunderland each week, spread across groups throughout the city. With your assistance, this number could potentially grow, further enriching the Scouting experience for young minds in our community.

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