About Scouting | Cheshire Scouts

The Scouts are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation; Cheshire is one of the largest Scout Counties in the UK with a total membership of over 14,000 and growing.

We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities. Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
