What is Independent Australian Scouts?
Scouting is a Movement, not a single organization. The Scout Movement is made up of many different organizations, including :-
Local associations of Scouts (Scout Groups),
Other than Scouts of Australia central associations have included the :-
League of Boy Scouts,
Australian Imperial Boy Scouts,
British Boy Scouts,
Church Scout Patrols (Anglican Church),
Life Saving Scouts (Salvation Army),
Catholic Boy Scout's Association,
Plast Ukrainian Scouts Association in Victoria Ltd.
A movement is based on common ideals, practices and aims and cannot be controlled
by any one person or organization. In the past there have been attempts by
one organization to gain absolute control of the Scouts. Scouts of Australia
exists to protect the interests and the diversity of scouts and to bring
together all scout organizations.
