‘Leader shortage’ means 51,000 children wait to join Scouts

There are 51,000 children on a waiting list to become Scouts, Beavers, Cubs or Explorers, according to the organisation behind the movement. The Scout Association, which is open to girls and boys between six and 18, blamed a shortage of volunteer leaders. It said record numbers of adults were members but that volunteers had limited amounts of time.
