All young adults, that are members of the association and are aged between 18 and 25 in Scouting are members of the Scout Network.
The Scout Network website
Launched in April 2016, the Scout Network website is a place for Network members to create projects, events and connect with like minded members from across the UK. Take a look by clicking here.
From 2016 onwards, Members of all Scout Networks will not be required to pay the National Membership Subscription. In essence, this will mean that Scout Network will be ‘free’ to join. Of course, Districts and Counties may continue to charge local fees but we would encourage Districts and Counties to consider the appropriateness of this, bearing in mind that many Members of Scout Network will already be adult volunteers.
If you're moving away from home, for study or for work, you can carry on Scouting through Scout Network (or as an adult volunteer) by informing your District Scout Network Commissioner that you are relocating. They will be able to put you in contact with the District Scout Network Commissioner for the area you are moving to and pass them your details. Over time, you will be able to manage ‘moving’ to another District via the UK Scout Network website.
