Inclusion: additional needs

There are many practical ways in which you can ensure all young people can fully participate in scouting.

Scouting is designed to be flexible to support all young people to take part, achieve and reach their full potential. When joining a Section, the young person is joining the Group and should be encouraged to progress through Scouting with their peers.
