The main object for which the Company is established is for the purpose of benefit to the community to encourage, and to support Scout Groups in encouraging, the social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that those young people may achieve their full potential and, as responsible citizens, improve society.
As objects incidental and ancillary to the attainment of the Main Object, the Company shall have as subsidiary objects to promote:
Promise and law - the commitment to a code of living based on the values of the Scout movement;
Personal progression – a scheme to support the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes in all areas and to provide recognition for individual and group achievements;
Learning by doing – an approach that prioritises learning by practice, first-hand experience, and from both successes and mistakes;
Small Group System – progressive, democratic and self-governing groups, usually of 6-8 young people, being the basic organisational structure of Scouting;
Symbolic Framework - providing a setting for Scouting that stimulates the imagination through symbols, themes and stories;
Nature and Outdoors - the natural environment is the primary setting for Scouting offering unique opportunities for the development of the young person.
Young People and Adults Working Together - a partnership model in which young people are supported to become increasingly self-governing and independent.
Service and Commitment - recognising the importance of contributing to society by caring for others and the world around us.
