How we're dealing with COVID-19

About Us

Who are we?

Our District was formed on 1st April 1947 following separation from Birkenhead Scouts. Now, we are made up of over 30 sections spread across 12 groups, covering Bebington, Spital, New Ferry, Bromborough and Eastham.

Scouting is split nationally into Regions, Counties and Districts. We are a district in the Merseyside County of North West Region.

We are led by our District Team which is in turn led by our District Commissioner

What do Scouts do?

Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

As Scouts, we believe in empowering young people with skills for life. This means that we strive to enrich our young people by providing fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

With groups meeting every night of the week, we are certain you will find a group that fits your needs. Please feel free to look around and see what we're up to, and if something catches your interest, why not drop us a line and get involved!

Scouts prepare young people with #SkillsForLife

Each week Scouts gives almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience & skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.

We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

Volunteers and Young Leaders

There are lots of ways you can get involved, from helping out occasionally on a parent rota or volunteering your time as a leader to supporting local Scouting. Our volunteering opportunities are as varied as you! Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local village hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
