By 2018:

We will have 500,000 young people.

They will be supported by 150,000 volunteers.

How will we continue to grow?

We’ll develop a new strategy for opening new Units, Groups and sections; ensuring all Groups have Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

We’ll improve retention between, and within, sections.

A high quality programme is key to growth, so a revamped programme will be launched in 2015.

We’ll recruit new volunteers by reinforcing messages around flexible volunteering, targeting key groups such as parents and former youth members, and reaching out to 18–25 year olds.
