World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS)

A small selection of our leaders paid for themselves to attend the WFIS general assembly because of our group currently lacking the funds to cover the costs. They flew to Portugal to accept our invitation to become full members after successfully completing our probationary period. Our group now joins over 150 affiliated groups in 65 countries, combining to make a staggering 7 million individuals.

Richard, our GSM, commented, ‘I am pleased to advise that our Scout Group was accepted as a full member of the World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS) at their General Assembly in Lisbon, Portugal on last Saturday. The acceptance vote was unanimous, and our three young leaders were greeted with a standing ovation when we were invited into the meeting. There were some 150 Scouts there from many countries and the majority were young leaders!’

Through our membership we can now network with Scouters around the globe.
