We need your views

As we strive to achieve the ambitious goals set out in Scouting for All, our Vision to 2018, your views are more important than ever.

Last year, we ran our member attitudes survey for the first time. Over 6,000 of you responded and gave us vital insight and feedback. We learned that 93% of our members are proud to be Scouts, with 87% of you recommending volunteering with Scouts to family and friends. This is great news.

We also learnt that while members feel proud they do not always feel valued for their efforts in Scouting and more work is required to help all members know who their line manager is and that both parties understand training needs better.

We want your views again, so we can see what has changed over the past 12 months. We want to find out what has improved and what still needs work to ensure that all of our members feel empowered, valued and proud.

The annual survey is your chance to raise the issues you want to be addressed. It’s an opportunity to let us know how you are finding your Scouting experience at the moment, and how we can help to make it even better.

Your response to this survey will help HQ and Counties/Areas/Regions (Scotland) understand what is working well. More importantly it will show us what kind of things take away your enjoyment and enthusiasm, highlighting areas that need further support and work.

There will still be consultation on specific issues or projects when appropriate, but this annual member survey will allow you the chance to feed back on other issues personal to you in Scouting.

The survey will close on Monday 8 September allowing the summer for you to complete it. Once the survey closes the results will be analysed and shared with the National UK Chief Commissioners team and County/Area/Region Commissioners to give a breakdown of trends in the local area. You are not asked for your name or membership number within the survey.

Complete the survey and let us know your views.
