Strategy 2018-2023

Scouting continues to deliver our 2014-18 Strategic Plan, Scouting for All. As a movement, we are proud that we are growing, becoming more youth-shaped and inclusive whilst making a positive impact in our communities.
ScoutsCymru, working in conjunction with The Scout Association, is now planning Scouting's future beyond 2018, thinking about our priorities, the work we wish to continue and any new area where we can make a difference, all to answer the questions: how can we improve the life chances of young people and better support our volunteers? We want as many members as possible to have the opportunities to contribute to this important process.

We are excited to announce our Draft Strategy.

Dyfodol 17 is your exciting opportunity to input into the creation of the new ScoutsCymru Strategy for Beyond 2018.

Our Pillars

To achieve the objectives in the Draft Plan we will focus on three pillars of work:


A fun, enjoyable, high quality programme consistently delivered and supported by simple (digital) tools.


More, well trained, better supported and motivated adult volunteers, and young people, from diverse backgrounds.


Scouting is clearly understood, more visible, trusted, respected and widely seen as playing a key role in today’s society.
