By 2018:

Scouting will be present and sustainable in 200 of the most deprived parts of the UK.

Scout Groups will have more than four girls in each section.

Scouting will continue to welcome disabled, LGBT, black and minority ethnic members.

Scouting will be seen as open to people from all backgrounds by the general public. 

How will we become more inclusive?
We’ll undertake development work and leverage support from key opinion formers to ensure Scouting is present and sustainable in the most deprived areas of the UK.

We’ll support volunteers to identify and remove barriers to Scouting.

Partnerships will be established with key organisations to provide expertise and advice on issues including disability and sexual orientation.

We’ll improve the diversity of volunteers in senior leadership positions.
