About Us

The International Scout and Guide Fellowship has 56 full member countries and 5 associate members. Each of these countries is represented by a 'National Scout and Guide Fellowship'. Australia's Fellowship is the National Scout and Guide Fellowship of Australia and was accepted as a full member in 1961.

The Aims of the International Scout and Guide Fellowship are to encourage its members ...

  • to personally keep alive the spirit of the Promise and Law as laid down by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of the Scout and Guide Movements,

  • to bring that spirit into the communities in which they live and work, and

  • to actively support Scouting and Guiding in these communities, in their countries and worldwide.

NSGFA represents four constituent organisations:


Baden-Powell Scout Guild of Australia.


Trefoil Guild of Australia.


St Georges Guilds in Australia Inc.

Scouts Western Australia Fellowship.


The NSGFA Executive is the administrative body and consists of 3 representatives from the Baden-Powell Scout Guild and 3 representatives from the Trefoil Guild.

The Executive is rotated to a different State every 3 years.
