Beyond 2018

Locally and nationally, 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 while making a positive impact in our communities.

The Scout Association (TSA) 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.

This page gives you all the research, consultation and resources associated with the creation of a draft strategic plan. Consultation on the plan has now closed and feedback is being reviewed to prepare a final strategic plan for 2018.

Scouting for all

Between 2014-2018, the Movement has been working towards a strategic plan that prioritised Growth, Inclusivity, Community Impact and being Youth Shaped. You can find the strategic plan and supporting resources below.


Throughout 2016 and 2017, The Scout Association has been consulting and carrying out research to inform our next strategic plan. You can find the results below. We'll keep updating this as we do more research.


We asked experts and decision makers both in and out of Scouting what they think the priorities for Scouting between 2018-23 should be. You can find what they had to say below. We'll keep updating this as we get more views.
