Guides and Scouts of Europe, UK

We are a UK scouting organisation established in 2021. We will apply to become an observer member of the UIGSE-FSE, which is an association of lay faithful recognised by the Holy See and a worldwide organisation with 67,000 members in a total of 24 countries. We will work closely with our neighbours, the Irish Guides and Scouts of Europe and the French Guides and Scouts of Europe.

Forming Men and Women of Virtue

The Scouting programme raises up responsible adults through faith, education, games, friendship, service and leadership. Individuals build character and prepare for the challenges of life.

Freedom Through Education

The Scout Law is the scout and the guide’s compass: on the day of their Promise, they pledge to follow it faithfully throughout their lives. The Law is one of the most important levers of the scouting method, which educates to freedom. With freedom comes the path to sainthood.
