Apollo Beavers joins A Million Hands

16 October 2015

Apollo Beavers have joined the Scout Associations A Million Hands Project.  On Monday 12 October the Beavers found out all about the 4 Social Issues that the Scout Association are trying to tackle as part of the A Million Hands Project.

  • Dementia – Over 850,000 people in the UK have dementia and millions more are affected in some way. Could your young people make their lives better?
  • Disability – Over 11 million people in the UK are disabled by society. This affects their education, employment opportunities and even their safety.
  • Mental wellbeing – One in four people in the UK will experience mental health problems every year. Young people could help others to be more resilient.
  • Clean water and sanitation – 650 million people in the world live without safe water. Scouting is a global movement, what’s stopping our young people make global change?

At the end of the evening the Beavers voted on the issue they wanted to tackle – the result of that vote will be announced on Monday 19 October 2015.
