These badges are awarded to celebrate a young person's commitment to Scouting and for taking an active part in the programme.
If the young person has already been a Member, the badges will continue from those earned in previous sections.
For those Scouts who have been a Beaver Scout or Cub Scout, you will need to liaise with their leaders to check the date of the last award.
The participation badges are numbered. You can award a participation badge every twelve months from the time the Scout joins your Troop, up to a maximum of four badges.
