Creating the do-ers, and give-it-a-goers in Hackney & Tower Hamlets.

We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Every week we give 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.

Scouts are 32% more likely to be physically active than young people who don’t take part in Scouting.

All but one of the men who walked on the moon were scouts, along with scores of Olympic athletes who first tried their disciplines at Scouts.

All of this starts with a varied programme each week offering skills, adventure and being part of the world around us to help grow the citizens of tomorrow.
