The Promise

Scouting is open to people of all faiths as well as people who are humanist, atheist or have no affirmed faith and therefore must take account of the different religious obligations or non religious beliefs of its Members. Similarly, people of other nationalities resident in the United Kingdom, who may become Members of the Association, owe allegiance to their own Country. To meet these circumstances, there are different variations of the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Promise that can be made, allowing for the individuals obligations while upholding the essential spirit of the Promise.

Below is a list of all the different versions of the Scout Promise.

For Hindus And Buddhists:
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to my Dharma
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.

For Muslims:
In the name of Allah,
the Most Beneficial
and the Most Merciful,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to Allah
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.

For Christians, Jews and Sikhs:
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.

For Humanists, Atheists and those with no defined Faith:
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to uphold our Scout values,
to do my duty to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.

For subjects of independent Commonwealth countries, foreign nationals and individuals who are stateless the following wording can replace ‘duty to the Queen’:
…to do my duty to the country in which I am now living.
