Parent's Information


Parents are as an important resource for scouting as the leaders or young people are. These pages are for you! They are intended to provide you with information to support your child in Scouts. If you have any other questions we recommend that you speak to your child's Leader who will be more than willing to help.

Information Packs

Below are several links to information and support packs that have been developed by UK and Scottish Headquarters.

Complaints Procedure

We would of course hope that everybody who comes into contact with Scouting has a positive experience. However, it is inevitable that on occasion concerns may arise. As Scouting takes place locally, the first port of call should be an informal chat with the Group Scout Leader (if the issue is within a Scout Group), or the District Explorer Scout Commissioner (for Explorer Scouts). Hopefully this will resolve the issue. If the issue is not dealt with to your satisfaction, we have a formal complaints procedure.

Badges are an important part of Scouting, from providing our identity to showing the hard work and dedication of the young people in achieving their awards. Below are links for each section to show where the badges should be sewn onto their uniforms.
