British Scouting Overseas (BSO) is a Scout Area of The Scout Association for The Scouts providing UK Scouting to UK citizens (and in some cases other nationalities) who are living overseas. BSO exists to support families around the world where, due to cultural or language barriers, it is not always possible for young people from the UK to join local Scout Groups in the country where they reside. Our aim to is to ensure that all members of BSO will feel they are full members of UK Scouting. They will enjoy their activities in a safe and secure environment best suited to their local circumstances and will have access to high-quality support and advice no matter where in the world they may be situated. Girlguiding UK has their own version: BGiFC.
