Delivering Scouting to Young People in the Blackburn Area

Skills For Life

Who are we?

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 750 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. 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 and communities together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

Return of Face to Face Scouting
01/12/2020 By Stuart Parker
We can now confirm what face to face Scout activity is allowed when England comes out of lockdown this week.
From the beginning of Wednesday 2 December, all tiers in England will be in Amber for youth provision, for those under the age of 18.
The Government and the National Youth Agency have confirmed that youth clubs and activities will be permitted at all three tiers in England, as services such as Scouts are essential to the development and wellbeing of young people, and should continue wherever possible.
As a reminder this means:
Sections can meet with up to 15 young people (aged under 18), plus 5 adults.
The session can take place outdoors or indoors but must be socially distanced.
Face coverings should be worn by anyone of Scout-age plus when indoors. Adults delivering an activity to young people aren’t required to wear a face covering.
 
Groups across Blackburn will make their own decision to open up sections on a Group by Group basis.

Canalside Active Support 2020
20/01/2020 By Stuart Parker

We are starting to plan our year at Canalside. We can't put on activities for Groups without mowing the grass and general maintenance of the site.

We hold a regular Tuesday evening session (weather dependant) and welcome new members to join us. You can come as often as you have available.

This year we are hoping we will get volunteers who may come once or twice to mow Canalside. There are 26 slots we need to fill for the year. Mowing can be completed according to your availability and does not need to be Tuesday evening. Please e-mail parker_stuart@hotmail.com  for more details.

And don't forget to book in your Groups for 2020
