Scouting is part of a global society where today many people suffer from mental illness during their lifetime. In Scouting, it is our priority to create a safe environment that promotes the development, well-being and safety of our children, young people, and adult volunteers. Therefore, we strive to create an ideal space to be able to listen and be listened to.
The health and well-being of our members is vital if Scouting is to achieve its mission of developing well-rounded, skilled, confident, and active contributing citizens. Being in good physical and mental health enables personal growth and general well-being.
In Scouting, it is the responsibility of all to take care and look after each other. SCOUTS South Africa has adopted the Health and Well-Being Challenge as our National Challenge for 2024!
