SCOUTING FOR ALL
Scouting in East Sussex is inclusive and open to all those who share our fundamental values.
Our Equal Opportunities Policy outlines what we do to ensure we are open and accessible; and that people are treated equally and with respect. This policy is reflective of the ethos of Scouting, expressed by our fundamental values (integrity, care, co-operation, respect and belief) and our commitment to delivering Scouting for all.
By removing any real or perceived barriers to participation, we can ensure that even more young people can enjoy the adventure of Scouting right across East Sussex and that we will be as diverse as the communities in which we live.
