Everything we do to help young people achieve skills for life

Scout Districts exist to provide direction, guidance, line management and support to Scout Groups. Support can be in lots of different forms whether it’s just being a friendly team to talk to when things aren’t working or even when they are; to organising large scale events or taking on some of the administrative burden that inevitably comes with running a charity.

We’re really proud of what we are able to offer in Preston and we are continuously striving to do more to support the leaders delivering fantastic programmes and life changing opportunities to young people in our community.  

Integrity – We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.
Respect – We have self-respect and respect for others.
Care – We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
Belief – We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.
Co-operation – We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others and make friends.

As a volunteer in Scouting you take an oath to uphold the values and act accordingly in everything you do.

Recruitment & Media

Scouting is about adventure for everyone. This runs through all of our media work and is our ‘brand. Underpinning the idea of adventure is that Scouting is about fun, friendship, trust, being confident and inclusive.
