Role of the Scout Association

In the UK there are over 400,000 members of the Scout Association, and another 28 million worldwide. The national organisation sets out clear policies and procedures to guide the activities of the local groups, which are overseen through a ‘District’ and ‘County’ administrative structure.

All leaders have to me approved by the Scout Association (become ‘warranted’) before taking charge of a colony, pack or troop and are required to undertake regular training to ensure their warrants remain valid. As would be expected child protection and safety are two of the key features of the training programme.
