The Scout Network is managed at District level, and is Scouting's final youth section for all young adults, aged between 18 and 25 years. Along with the local Scout Networks members can also take part in projects and events hosted by the UK Scout Network.


All members of the Scout Network are members of the UK section and supported by the UK Scout Network Commissioners. You can follow them on twitter @ukscoutnetwork


The Scout Network Leader for our District is Neil McLauchlan, who is an advisor or mentor to the members. There are currently no elected members of the Network to help to run it. 




Projects and Events


Scouting exists to make young people’s lives better, helping them realise their full potential and make an impact on their community. Scout Network enables this to happen through a programme of projects and events divided into three Programme Areas: Adventure, International and Community. 


There are a wide variety of projects and events that make up the Scout Network programme on offer. Participating in projects and events is also the way to collect over 300 virtual badges.



Examples of projects and events you can get involved with:



  • Gaining National Governing Body qualifications for activities such as Mountain Leader Awards as well as for Scouting’s in house scheme enabling you to become an Activity Leader.
  • Camping and developing practical Scouting skills through Survival Skills weekends or being part of an Expedition team to help complete a Scouting top award such as DofE Gold or Queen’s Scout Award.



  • Visiting a country abroad to explore the culture, meet other Scouting members from around the world or get involved in a community project to make a positive impact. If you and other Network members plan an overseas expedition for 10 days, to explore the culture and undertake some projects you are planning an Explorer Belt Award expedition!
  • Exploring global issues in the world around us and how we can make a difference and share our knowledge with others.



  • Taking part and leading a community project in our society and world that will make a positive difference and impact to those in need of our support. 
  • Supporting Scouting to build a more inclusive society, that is open to all. This could include attending events to demonstrate our commitment to equality.
