A million hands make light work
A new poll has discovered that 82% of the UKs young people believe it’s important for today’s youth to tackle social issues, but only 36% of one thousand 12-24 year olds believe there is an opportunity to do so.
…to help other people
Scouts help other people, we state it in our Scout Promise. Helping others have only ever been litter picking and washing cars but with A Million Hands we can change from being merely ‘useful’ to making a life-changing impact. Together we can immobilise half a million Scouts to help inspire more youth volunteering and social action across the UK.
Issues chosen by young people
Our young people themselves identified four key issues to take action on: improving the lives of those affected by dementia; improving the lives of the disabled, improving the mental wellbeing and resilience of families and ensuring everyone everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation. Across Hampshire Scouts have already signed up for this.
