1 A MILLION HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK scouts.org.uk/2018

2 A Million Hands 2 THE CHALLENGE AHEAD Like you, we believe in making a difference both to individuals and to wider society. In Scouting, we already take action in the service of others, but we want to do more. Since the Movement began, Scouts have promised to help other people. From running food banks to delivering meals on wheels, today Scouts take part in hundreds of projects that benefit their local areas. But while Scouts are active in their communities, there is too often little engagement with other people and organisations, as well as a lack of focus on impact or positive change that has been achieved. We want to embrace and contribute to social change. With the launch of our new Strategic Plan, Scouting For All (scouts.org.uk/2018), The Scout Association has committed to making a positive impact in our communities, creating or continuing 8,000 social action projects per year, across the Country, by But we can t do it on our own. We may have nearly half a million 6 25 year old girls, boys, young women and young men who have told us that they want to create genuine societal change. We may have members in every corner of the UK. We may have a sophisticated volunteer led programme that allows us to focus our entire movement on specific actions relatively easily. But what we don t have is all the answers on how to translate such huge potential into real change. We ve asked our young people what issues they want to take action on, and how. What they told us is outlined in the following pages. Now we re looking for four strategic partnerships with organisations already working to make change, for the next four years. In brief: We are looking to invest in four national partnerships over the next four years, where our 500,000 young people take action on the issues your organisation cares about Actions would be primarily practical, hands on projects, relevant to the communities you re trying to help, genuinely life changing for others whilst substantially developing our young people who take part We would want to develop educational resources to underpin the action they take, which are suitable for delivery through volunteers in a non-formal educational context. Partnerships would not involve fundraising for your cause, but could involve fundraising for the actions our young people take on your cause. Ultimately, the question we want to ask you is How would you use the skills, time and enthusiasm of 500,000 young people and adult volunteers across the UK to make a positive, measurable difference to the issues your organisation cares about? Our young people want to change the world. We hope you can work with us to make that happen. Bear Grylls Wayne Bulpitt Matt Hyde Chief Scout UK Chief Commissioner Chief Executive

3 A Million Hands 3 WHAT WE WANT TO DO... We want to make a positive, measurable impact on our local, national and international communities. We define Community Impact as young people taking action in the service of others, creating positive social change that is of benefit to the communities we are trying to help but also the young person taking part. That means that any projects/initiatives we develop should: Be relevant to the needs of the community we re trying to help Genuinely change the lives of others Genuinely develop the young person taking part What we ll achieve... In our strategic plan, Scouting For All (scouts.org.uk/2018), we have set out two goals to achieve by 2018: 1. To create or continue 8,000 Community Impact projects year on year 2. For 70% of the public and decision makers to agree that Scouting is relevant to modern society What we plan to do... We have the infrastructure to mobilise nearly half a million young people, supported by adult volunteers. Our approach would be as follows: 1. A Collective Focus for the Movement By partnering with four national organisations with expertise in making change on specific societal issues, we want to develop initiatives, resources and training to focus our 450,000 young people to achieve specific impacts. One of these issues will have an international focus. 2. Action that Matters to Young People Locally Regardless of the four issues selected for our Movement to focus on, local factors will impact on what young people want to take action on. As such, we will develop tools and resources for Scouting to take action on whatever issues their young people locally are passionate about. 3. Creating Community Leaders 60% of our Scouts said that seeing other young people lead our Community Impact work would motivate them to take action. We will create a group of young people to lead our work nationally and train adult volunteers to support young people locally. What we have to give... We have a lot to offer in making any national partnership a success... A dedicated budget to commit to the partnerships Two dedicated members of staff, supported by several Programme and Development Advisors A Community Impact Staged Activity Badge due for launch in January 2015 Capacity for two national training events reaching 200 young people and adult volunteers Scout Community Week: An annual week of community activities that already engages 150,000 young people with 2,500 projects, which from 2015 will focus on our national Community Impact issues The Scout Association s brand, digital assets and media team all geared up to make this strategic objective a success.

4 A Million Hands 4 WHAT OUR YOUNG PEOPLE SAID... We asked 3,000 of our year olds what issues they wanted to take action on, in what way and what would motivate them to do so. The following research should help you in deciding whether working with our 500,000 young people and adult volunteers could help further your own aspirations. Do they want to take action? Resoundingly, yes. Over 95% thought that improving the lives of others was an important part of Scouting. We have nearly half a million young people willing to take action and they could be doing so on the issues that matter to your organisation. 100 Knowing I have made a difference to people/ the environment through Scouting is important to me Improving the lives of others is an important part of Scouting Scouting provides me with enough opportunities to improve the lives of people in my community Scouting should help me to take social action Support for Social Action: Please pick how much you agree with the following statements. (% strongly agree and agree )

5 A Million Hands 5 What Issues do they want to take action on? What scale of Action? We wanted to know what scale of action they were willing to take. The answer was that our young people are not afraid to tackle issues regardless of where they occur. However, unusual to other groups of young people, issues on an international scale received more first preferences than national. Considering our global network of over 40 million Scouts with 162 established National Scout Organisations across the globe, this is not surprising. 100 International National Local Scale: What scale of action is most important to you? (% agreement with first, second or third preference)

6 A Million Hands 6 What issues work for scouting? We then asked what specific societal issues they would want to make a positive impact on, both personally and as part of Scouting. There were some issues that young people strongly agreed to as being issues Scouting should take action on: 1. Bullying 2. Young people s rights and wellbeing 3. Community cohesion (bringing people in the community together) However, no single issue received less than 74% of young people agreeing or strongly agreeing, meaning there are few limits to the issues in which young people would be willing to engage with as part of Scouting. Rights of the elderly Homelessness Community facilities International aid Education Poverty Employment Sexism Homo/Transphobia Environment Mental Health Ableism Racism Community Cohesion Young people s rights/wellbeing Bullying Issues: Which of these issues do you strongly agree the Scouts should be taking action on, regardless of your personal priorities? (% strongly agree)

7 A Million Hands 7 What issues work for young people personally? When asked what issues mattered to them personally (rather than what was most appropriate for Scouting to take action on) the following issues came top in terms of very important : 1. Bullying 65% 2. Education 63% 3. Mental health 57% Those who selected other and gave open comments focussed heavily on equalities, international issues, mental health, education and skills Bullying Education Mental health Racism Employment Ableism Poverty Young people s rights/wellbeing Homo/Transphobia Environment Sexism Homelessness International aid Rights of the elderly Community Cohesion Community facilities Issues: How important to you personally are each of the following issues? (% very important)

8 A Million Hands 8 If young people ran the country... Finally, to try and find out what issues were most important to young people in a different way, we asked what single part of Government they would invest in if they were in charge of the Country. Health care 15% Skills, employment and business 21% 14% Community and youth services 7% Climate change and energy production Education 29% 2% 5% 5% Our countries environment and farming/ fishing/wildlife International development (helping poorer countries) 2% Culture, media and sport Transport Budget Question: If you were the Prime Minister and could spend money on only ONE thing, what would it be? (% chosen)

9 A Million Hands 9 How do they want to take action? Social action can mean different things to different people and organisations. We wanted to know what type of action our young people wanted to take in a Scouting context. Practical, hands on projects was the clear preference, followed by partnering with non-scouts, fundraising and influencing decision makers. Although fundraising came high, we are not interested in simply fundraising for a particular cause. That is not to say that fundraising to allow our young people to deliver practical, hands on projects would be inappropriate. Also, influencing decision makers on the issues may be a secondary activity within this work, but it won t be our primary focus or go-to method of action Practical projects Social media and online actions Action with external organisations Giving Influencing decision makers information /advice Fundraising 20 0 Sponsorship Demonstrating Action: How do you think the Scouts should be helping to tackle issues? Please pick the top three that that you would be most excited to take part in through Scouting. (% agreement with first, second or third preference)

10 A Million Hands 10 WHAT DOES YOUR MP THINK? We want this work to shift the perceptions of Scouting held by decision makers and the general public. Hence we asked how MPs would rank issues we could take action on both in terms of where the greatest impact could be made but also which would increase their perception of Scouting as being relevant to modern society the most. There was a strong feeling amongst MPs that The Scout Association should first and foremost focus on the rights and wellbeing of young people. There was less consensus on other issues. While community cohesion scored fairly well in terms of placement in the top three issues to take action on, its average rank across politicians of all parties was little different from that of bullying, education, community facilities or employment. Encouragingly, 81% of MPs would be likely to attend or support a social action project run by our young people, and 79% associate The Scout Association with empowering young people to take action that has a positive impact in their communities. Please contact if you want any further details from the research we conducted Merseyside Scout Youth Forum

11 A Million Hands 11 A BIT ABOUT THE SCOUT ASSOCIATION... The Movement We re proudly volunteer led, but that certainly doesn t mean we compromise on scale, reach or quality... Chief Scout: Bear Grylls Ambassadors and Volunteers: Duchess of Cambridge, Lord Sebastian Coe, Justin King plus others 450,000 young people (6-25 years) 104,000 adult volunteers (18+) Waiting list of 41,000 young people 124,000 Beaver Scouts (6 8 years) 153,000 Cub Scouts (8 10 years) 126,000 Scouts (10 14 years) 44,000 Explorer Scouts (14 18 years) 2,400 Network (18 25 years) 19% girls and young women (6 25 young people) 37,000,000 hours given in volunteer time equating to 380 million of youth work 7,500 groups (individual meeting places) across the UK The Organisation We are well resourced to support our volunteers deliver everyday adventure... Established in staff across the UK with offices in London, Fife, South Glamorgan and Belfast We have delivery structures on a group (individual site), district, county, region and country level 26m turnover Corporate Partners: Canon, Volvo, 20th Century Fox, B&Q, Care, E.On, Morrisons, Halford, UK Space Agency, Disney, National Trust, The Wildlife Trust and many more Own and operate twelve outdoor activity centres across the UK Our Brand We have huge recognition with the general public and decision makers alike... 44% of the general public would like their children to join the Scouts 74% of the public believe we provide a safe place for young people to have fun and adventure Scouting was the most frequently named out of school activity for young people Scouting is seen as the most practical charity, 14% above average Our biggest potential support is from year olds, girls, woman and C2DE social grades (skilled, unskilled manual workers and unemployed). 79% of the general public believe it s very important for young people to have structured out of school activities 87% of MPs associate The Scout Association with engagnging and supporting young people in their personal developement. With 61% associating us with being worthy of public funding to support our objectivies 81% of MPs would publically suport our objectivies in print, broadcast or socail media. Please contact if you want any further details from the research we conducted

12 A Million Hands 12 CAN YOU HELP US? In August of this year we ll ask a group of our young people to decide the four national organisations we partner with through to 2018 to deal with specific social issues. Ultimately, the question we want to ask you is How would you use the skills, time and enthusiasm of 500,000 young people and adult volunteers across the UK to make a positive, measurable difference to the issues your organisation cares about? If you have some ideas, below are the type of questions we would love to explore with you. It is worth taking a look through the research and information outlined in this document to see where the aspirations of our young people match with the issues and actions you propose. The Impact and Action What impact could our young people be a part of? What type(s) of action could young people take to achieve that impact? How could we measure that impact? Would we support different activities for our different age groups? Would the action help young people to appreciate difference by working in groups, not just with other Scouts, but others in a community? What are the educational outcomes of the activity? Joint Resources What staff time could you commit and at what level? What financial resources, if any, could you commit? Do you have local reach and, if so, in what way? Are you comfortable in working with us to produce educational materials that are suitable for delivery through a volunteer led, non-formal programme? What other assets, such as ambassadors/partnerships/expertise/planned events could you offer? Interested? June July We would work with you to develop a proposition on how we might work together. August Our young people meet to decide which four organisations they would like to work with. September December We will work with the successful organisations to develop strategy, resources and training in delivering social action initiatives in your area of expertise. January 2015 We launch our partnerships to the Movement and outside world, working with you to achieve media coverage and buy in from Scouting locally. If you think there is potential to partner with us then please contact our Head of Public Affairs and Campaigns at by the 13 July to explore further. Regardless, thank you for taking the time to consider how we could work together, and goodluck with your own organisations goals and aspirations.
