About/History

The North East Region of Scottish Scouting came into existence on 1st April 2008 and has grown ever since. The emphasis of a region is to give local Districts more scope to plan and deliver programme support for young people and adults involved in Scouting.

The Regional Team of North East Scotland Scouts will focus on strategic and long-term objectives of ensuring effective communication and development as well as the training of adult members in the Region.  The regional team also includes members responsible for maintaining and growing Network and Explorer numbers with all District in the Region.  The region hosts all the specialist advisors such as International, Activities, Child Protection etc.

Please contact anyone of the Regional Team for more information about how Scouting can be developed for more young people and adults in your area.
