45th Glasgow (2nd Kirkintilloch) Scout Group

Charity registered in Scotland SC045913

By 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.

We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.

Our plan is to build on the success of the previous plan: to continue to grow, become more inclusive, to be shaped by young people and to make a bigger impact in our communities. We have set new goals for 2023. There are specific goals for Scotland.

As a movement, we have grown for the last 13 years. We want to continue that positive trend, bringing skills for life to more young people across the UK.
