Scouting membership

UK Scouting has experienced its biggest growth spurt since 1972, taking total membership to 499,323.

Census results, released today, show 16,568 new adult and youth members in the UK since 31 January 2009. This is 3.45 per cent up on last year (2009: 482,448).

This impressive surge in membership – the fifth consecutive year of growth – has helped cement Scouting’s position as the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
