Scouting in Wales is largely represented by the Welsh Scouting Sgowtiaid Cymru branch of the Scout Association of the United Kingdom, although some groups of the Baden-Powell Scouts' Association also operate there.
The Scout Association in Wales is administered through 12 Scout Areas. It has 12,000 young people, and over 3000 adult volunteers. The Welsh Scout Council is the governing body. There is a Chief Commissioner for Wales and Commissioners for the various sections - Commissioner for Beaver Scouts (Wales), Commissioner for Cub Scouts (Wales), Commissioner for Explorer Scouts (Wales) and Commissioner for the Scout Network (Wales). The Field Service in Wales comprises two paid Field Commissioners, along with four Local Development Officers funded by various short-term grants. A small team of staff manages the administrative office in Llantwit Major.
Aberystwyth Student Scout and Guide Organisation, Bangor University Guides and Scouts, Cardiff University Scouts and Guide Society, Glamorgan University Guides and Scouts, and Students of Swansea in Guides and Scouts, all affiliated to the Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO), are situated in Wales.
