I am delighted to announce that five well-known figures will be joining the Scout Ambassador team, to raise awareness of our invaluable work helping young people develop skills for life.
They are Paralympic gold medallist Ellie Simmonds, Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover, TV presenters Anita Rani and Steve Backshall, and adventurer Megan Hine. They join current Scout Ambassadors, including Chris Evans, Ed Stafford and Julia Bradbury, as positive role models for young people.
Along with our current ambassadors and volunteers, I know they will champion our Scout values and support us in growing the movement, helping more young people develop skills for life.
In addition to introducing our new ambassadors, I’m pleased to announce that Bear Grylls has accepted an offer to remain as Chief Scout until 2020, following a full consultation with the Council of The Scout Association, and a recommendation from the Board of Trustees.
Due to time commitments, local requests for appearances cannot currently be met. Find out more about all our Scout Ambassadors, and what being an ambassador for Scouting means to them.
