SCOUTS - Be Prepared


The Faith Award is about encouraging young people to develop an understanding of their own or another faith community. It is designed to bring a Group together to promote a greater understanding of the:

- life

- history, or

- practices of a faith community in your local community area.


The aims of the Faith Award are to:

- develop a greater understanding of a faith community

- promote activities between the Sections

- support the faiths and beliefs dimension in the Balanced Programme

- ensure there is a positive influence on everyone taking part

- have a long-term benefit in encouraging greater understanding or awareness of a local faith community.


Examples of projects might include:

- developing links with a Scout Group of a faith community different to your own, e.g. Muslim or Sikh

- working with an agency of your own faith community.
