Vision Towards 2018

GLSE is working towards its strategy under 'Vision Towards 2018.

More people are joining now than at any time in the last 50 years. But none of this happened by accident – this was part of our Vision Towards 2012. Together we have transformed Scouting. With new leadership, a revised programme, training and image, we are renewed and re-energised. We've still got work to do to finalise that. So now there's a new vision for Scouting beyond 2012 – this time to 2018.

For more information see the Vision for 2018 pages.
