About West Lancs Scouts
As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Each week, we give over 460,000 young people in the UK the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. Here in West Lancs Scout County we work with children and young adults aged 6 - 25 years at over 160 locations covering the areas of Blackpool, Chorley, Fylde, Lancaster and Morecambe, Ormskirk, Preston, South Ribble and Wyre. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
By 2023 we will have prepared more young people 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. We are proud to say we are a values-based movement. Our Scout values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation guide everything we do.
