In Scotland, Scouting is administered by The Scottish Council The Scout Association, a registered Scottish Charity No. SC017511, affiliated to The Scout Association (UK).
Under agreement with The Scout Association, The Scottish Council has delegated responsibility for the management of the affairs of The Scout Association in Scotland, with specific responsibilities for programme, training, and administration.
The Scottish Council is dedicated to making sure that Scouting in Scotland remains safe, fun and relevant for young people, and that the Scouting Programme is properly delivered.
As there are variations in legal, educational and national affairs in Scotland, The Scottish Council publishes its own Scottish Variations to The Scout Association's Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR), which it supports Groups in complying with.
Scouting in Scotland is further sub-administered on a regional and local level, ensuring that each Group has nearby support and assistance in providing the best Scouting experiences possible for their members.
