Staying safe and safeguarding – Looking after each other

Scouts’ A Million Hands Programme – Better Mental Health For All

One in every ten young people in the UK has a mental health problem. Mental health problems can stop young people from achieving their goals, now or later in life.

Every young person deserves to be able to reach their full potential. We’re working together with Scouts as part of their A Million Hands programme, to help make that happen.

Media Team

Scouting is about adventure for everyone and at every level. This message runs through all of our media work and is what we call our ‘brand’. Underpinning the idea of adventure is that Scouting is about fun, friendship, trust, being confident and inclusive. Do you have something you want to shout about or share across the district or the wider community – Our media team are on hand to support you.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
Bear Grylls, Chief Scout Bear Grylls
