Guide and Scout groups at prisons

Two Mothers’ Union members in Scotland initiated and lead a Guide and Scout group for children and young people visiting in prison, with both groups taking place at the prison visitor centre.

These two members have gathered together a band of 25 volunteers to make this possible.

They have a Rainbow group running each week too (for younger age groups), which is proving popular. Each week they pick a different theme, food, health, etc, and all the play is within these themes.

We hope and pray that our actions will contribute to making the time children and families spend a worthwhile, enriching experience
