Without realising it, you have helped thousands of young people like Hugh in ways they never thought possible. Hugh has had incredible, memorable experiences from all the climbing, camping and international events he has taken part in, and the life-long friends he made along the way from all over the world. But, more than that, Hugh gained the confidence to help him take control as he moves into the adult world.

“I hated school, but that’s the wonderful thing about the Scouts; no matter how rubbish school or work has been you can come to Scouts and it’s always fun.” - Hugh, 18
