Ukrainian scouting organisation in Great Britain

A fairly large contingent of Ukrainians came to Great Britain in 1947-48, among whom were Plast members. They began working to build ‘stanytsi’ (plast centres) in towns where there was a Ukrainian community.

These were in:
  • Bradford
  • Derby
  • Wolverhampton
  • London
  • Leicester
  • Manchester
  • Nottingham

Plast membership is divided into five age groups.
  • Ptasheniata (Little Birds) 4-6 years of age
  • Novaky (Cub Scouts) 6-12 years of age
  • Yunaky (Scouts) 12-18 years of age
  • Starshi Plastuny (Rover Scouts) 18-35 years of age
  • Seniory (Senior Scouts) age over 35
