Guidance to Support Gender Diverse Members in Scouting

This guidance note is designed to support leaders and youth members to meaningfully include people who are transgender or gender diverse within Scouting.


We’re pleased to release new guidance to support inclusion of gender diverse members in Scouting. This is designed to support implementation of the National Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Policy and Standards approved in August 2020.

The comprehensive guidance was developed by the National Diversity & Inclusion Team with input from gender diverse youth members. It provides a step-by-step approach to assist leaders with supporting youth members when they first become aware the member is gender diverse, and includes a detailed Frequently Asked Question section.
