Links to Scouts and Groups abroad

A great way of helping Scouts in the UK understand more about The Scout Association as a global movement is putting them in contact with Scouts in other countries, and there are a number of ways you can do this.

If you are organising a trip to a country in which they live, getting in contact with a British Group there is an easy way of making contact with a Group in the country – with the added bonus that they’re guaranteed to speak English! They may also be able to give you top tips on where is good to stay locally, or sights to see.

Even if you’re not visiting a country, linking with them another way – via email/letters etc is a valuable opportunity to see how similar they are to Scouts in the UK – but also how completely different. A great way of making young people value the similarities between Scouts across the world, despite our very different backgrounds and experiences.

If you don’t want to connect with a UK Group abroad – the International Links Scheme, JOTA and JOTI are a great way of connecting with Scouts in other countries.

For more information on the International Links Scheme, contact international.links@scouts.org.uk
