Welcome to Scouts NI

Every year we help over 10,000 young people in Northern Ireland enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

We continue to grow with more and more young people joining in the adventure every day. With 163 Scout Groups and 80 Explorer Scout Units across Northern Ireland you are never far from somewhere to get involved.

Community Impact

A Million Hands

Removing social barriers, connecting communities and improving lives.

Participating in our A Million Hands programme is one way Scouts can take action and achieve their Community Impact Staged Activity Badge.  It provides ready-made activities and programme ideas centered on six national themes, chosen by our young people themselves.

Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
