Regional Strategy 2022-2025

Quick links

Our plan is to equip more young people with skills for life.

To deliver our ambitious goals, the South East Scotland Regional Strategy 2022-2025 will maintain four programmes of work with the three main pillars – Programme, People and Perception – supported by our Performance programme.

Our Vision

By 2025 we will have prepared more young people in South East Scotland with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme. We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.​

Our Mission

Scouting actively engages and supports young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

Our Values

We act with care, respect, integrity, and cooperation, exploring our own and others’ beliefs.
