At ScoutsCymru we encourage people to do more, be more and learn more. This is why, as an inclusive movement, we celebrate how diverse and awesome every one of our members are.

With Dyslexia Awareness Week and Dyspraxia Awareness Week being marked this October, we caught up with two of our members who have shared their experiences of being a member of ScoutsCymru with their disabilities.

Clem Wilson, 26, is a Scouting Support Officer for Powys and was diagnosed with Dyspraxia whilst in University after his lecturers noticed he was struggling with some assignments.

Look who’s joined ScoutsCymru! Introducing Joseph Murphy, one of our two new Deputy Chief Commissioners. We’ve had a busy summer recruiting new volunteers to add to Team Cymru. Joseph will help volunteers develop their own leadership skills and work together to support local teams to help young people be amazing and develop the skills that set them up for life.

We caught up with Jospeh to learn a little bit about him and why he is the perfect fit for the job.

Where are you from?

I’m from Cardiff.

At ScoutsCymru we believe that wellbeing and mental health is a huge part of the support that we provide to our young people and adult volunteers throughout their entire Scouting journey.

So, we are extremely proud to announce that we have signed our pledge with Time to Change Wales. The pledge is a public declaration that we as an organisation want to take a leading role in tackling mental health stigma and discrimination.
