Questions

What do Network members get up to?


Scout Network connects 20,000 18-25 year olds across the UK, and gives them the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting projects and events centred on the themes of ‘Adventure’, ‘Community’ and ‘International’. Whether you’re organising a local meet-up or a once in a lifetime trip to the Amazon, it’s all about working together to build new skills, seek out new experiences and make a difference in the world. Network groups are flexibly run and self-led. Members can create profiles on the Scout Network website, using the platform to meet others with similar goals and share their progress. There are 395 virtual badges currently available to achieve, and members can also work towards a number of Top Awards.




How often do Network meet?


Network members don’t necessarily meet every week. Some might meet a few times a year to complete a single project together. Others might dive into lots of different projects at once, or meet locally more regularly. No matter how you’d like to do things, advice on how to get the most out of projects and events can be found here.




Who runs Scout Network?


Members manage their own journey, organising their own projects with the support of our District Scout Network Commissioner. Throughout their journey, they might also interact with Assistant County Commissioners (Network) – who assist with Network activity throughout the wider County – and the UK Scout Network Commissioner, who oversees Network activity across the whole of the UK.




Is there a Uniform?


Yes. Network members wear a stone shirt or blouse with an added Scout Network uniform badge. If they like, they can also wear the nationwide UK Scout Network Scarf or their local District Scout Network scarf (known as a necker). Merchandise is available from Scout Store here.
