A Million Hands

31st July 2015

Today is the official launch of A Million Hands, a project that aims to mobilise half a million Scouts to take action on the issues that matter most to them. To help them achieve this, there are fantastic resources available on the new A Million Hands website, which are full of activity ideas for volunteers and awareness-raising projects for all sections.

We made a Promise to help others…let's show the world we mean it.

Changing the world

We should be proud of the good things we’ve done in communities for over a hundred years now. Litter picking, conservation and fence painting are not to be scoffed at. But imagine what we could do if we focus that passion and energy on the big generational issues of our time – moving from 'useful' to 'life changing'. A Million Hands is about improving the lives of people around us and helping us change the world where we live.

As a quick recap, here are the issues our young people can choose to take action on:

  • Improving the lives of those affected by dementia.
  • Improving the lives of those disabled by society.
  • Improving the mental wellbeing and resilience of families.
  • Ensuring everyone everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation.
