  • Figures published today (15th May 2019) reveal that a year on from launching its Skills for Life strategy, Scouting in Wales continues to grow year-on-year
  • This means that 14,194 young people in Wales are now part of the UK Scout movement and are each week developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future
  • In the last five years, 22 new groups have opened in Wales, which means Scouting is now available to young people in the 20 most deprived communities in Wales

An “inspirational” Newport Cub Scout leader with hearing loss is travelling across the country to teach youngsters vital sign language skills.

Alex Miller, who is deaf, has visited Scout groups across Wales and England over the past two years to educate them on how to use basic sign language and also raise awareness of hearing-related disabilities.

The 25-year-old, who is an assistant leader with the 29th Newport Sea Scouts, has so far taught up to 100 Scouts sign language through practical sessions and also by using song.
