Our uniform gives everyone in Scouts a sense of belonging. Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out and helps everyone feel part of the group. Our uniform consists of a sweatshirt or shirt (depending on the section) that you can sew badges on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, trousers or shorts.
A uniform can either be bought from the official online shop – Scout Store – or from a local supplier. If you’re not sure where to start, leaders can give you more information about what to buy and where to buy it. They may even know if someone is selling a uniform second hand.
They will need their new uniform for investiture. This normally takes place 3 – 4 weeks after they start & gives them a chance to decide if they like it or not.
