Scouting is an inclusive, values-based movement and membership is open to all those who share our fundamental values.
Our Equality, diversity and inclusion policy (available on the Scouts website) outlines what we do to ensure the movement is open and accessible; and that people are treated equally and with respect. This policy is reflective of the ethos of Scouting, expressed by our fundamental values (integrity, care, co-operation, respect and belief) and our commitment to delivering Scouting for all.
By removing any real or perceived barriers to participation, we can ensure that even more young people can enjoy the adventure of Scouting and that Scouting will be as diverse as the communities in which we live.
More information on how to make Scouting Accessible to all is available on the Scouts website here.
