Welcome to the Baden-Powell Scouts' Association
The B-PSA UK is an independent Scout Association with membership in the World Federation of Independent Scouts and dates back to the foundations of Scouting in 1907.
Our Aim is to maximise the development and happiness of young people as citizens of the world in the 21st century.
We are passionate about the value of the outdoors, traditional skills and our Scout Law and Promise.
We deliver our mission through a progressive and professional programme that is underpinned by a democratic, friendly and supportive organisation. Because of this we are growing and if you are interested in starting your own group, why not print off our Welcome Guide:
