About Merseyside Scouts

Merseyside is a dynamic and growing Scout County located in the North West of England. The county stretches from Southport in the North, to St Helens in the west and the Wirral in the South. In the last two years the County has undergone a complete review which has included District restructuring, greater investment and focus on its’ youth programme, improved public relations and a more robust approach to its management.

Merseyside is a County which :

  • Challenges its actions and thinking to ensure relevancy and impact
  • Is self confident, proud, determined and honest
  • Provides high quality experiences for young people and adults
  • Recognises where it can and can’t make an impact
  • Recognises the value of high quality adult support
  • Values all aspects of the programme and seeks to support the more difficult
  • Recognises that childhood happens only once and those experiences count
  • Is aspirational

Merseyside is a County which is :

  • Engaging … an important part of Scouting on Merseyside
  • Productive … should achieve something with what it does
  • Worth Coming For … value in what we provide
  • Relevant … to what our members do
  • Rewarding … for all those involved
  • Better Than Alternatives … never be a need to do something different
  • Responsive … to changing needs and demands
