Lancashire County Council Social Services



To promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.


The method of achieving the Aim of the Association is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law guided by adult Leadership.

This is further expanded through the progressive training programme, for the age related child / youth sections of Beaver Scouts (6-8 years), Cub Scouts (8-10 years), Scouts (10 - 14 years), Explorer Scouts (14 - 18) and Scout Network (18 - 25).

Scout Groups in the local community are supported by Scout Districts who in turn are supported by a Scout County. LCVYS serves two Scout Counties: East Lancashire and West Lancashire.

The Scout Association has policies for Child Protection and Equal Opportunities details of which can be found in the ‘Policy, Organisation and Rules’ (POR) that gives guidance and information relevant to The Scout Association.

Various activity centres are owned by the two Scout Counties across Lancashire and further afield, details of which are available from the relevant County Offices (see below).
