One of the biggest myths about Scouting is that Groups are closing down due to a lack of young people wanting to become Members. Nothing could be further from the truth; Scouting in the UK is a growing Movement and we currently have 30,000 young people on our waiting lists simply because we do not have enough adults to help out. All our leaders that run our four busy sections are volunteers. Adults become Leaders for all kinds of reasons; to give something back to the community, because volunteering is a ‘good thing’, to spend more quality time with their child, to develop their own skills or just to enjoy and rediscover adventure.
