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.
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.
COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation. Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet. If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most. We’re asking everyone – including young people and their families, volunteers, and former Scouts – to sign up and join one of four teams as we #RaceRoundTheWorld. The four teams are racing each other to see who can be the first to travel the 43,000 miles to get round the world. Everyone who takes part will be following our route at least once, though we’re encouraging everyone to take on as many miles as they can manage!
The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.Find out more
