Clyde Scouts

Charity registered in Scotland SC010415

Clyde Scouts is one of eight geographical areas that supports Scout Groups and Districts in Scotland. Scouting provides adventure-based programmes for young people between the ages of 6 and 25 years old throughout the City of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and North and South Lanarkshire.

We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives.

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


Current opportunities

Each week, we help over 6,500 young people develop the skills to succeed in life. But this can only happen thanks to our brilliant volunteers. Volunteering is easier than you think. Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we have hundreds of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace and further education. We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout. You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together. Volunteer today and help us prepare more young people with Skills for Life.

Clyde Scouts is a Region within Scouting in Scotland and is a registered Charity. The Region supports Scouting over Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire. We are there to make sure that every group and District is provided with the support to provide #SkillsForLife for every young person in their area. Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for everyone. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
