Promise, Law & Values

The Scout Association vision is:

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 guided by our Values

Integrity – We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.
Respect – We have self-respect and respect for others.
Care – We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
Belief – We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.
Co-operation – We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others and make friends.

our Promise

– there are simpler versions for Beavers and Cubs and variations to recognise the various faith communities & those of no faith

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God and to The Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.
