Inclusion

Scouting for all

Scouting was established in 1907 as an open and inclusive organisation with the current Equal Opportunities Policy put in place in 1996. This policy supports the principle that no member should be discriminated against on the basis of their class, gender, ethnic background, nationality, sexuality, mental or physical ability and political or religious belief.

In 2010, TSA adopted a diversity framework which puts inclusion at the heart of the organisation and outlines plans to deliver projects across all the strands. These include accessibility, LGBT, faiths and beliefs and community cohesion. We have also appointed a team of specialist advisers in inclusion and diversity who volunteer around the country to support you in improving diversity and inclusion in your locality.
