Creating the do-ers, and give-it-a-goers in Hackney & Tower Hamlets.
We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here.
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.
Scouting is open to everyone. Christians, Muslims, Atheists, boys, girls - anyone who can make a promise to do their best and shares our values: Integrity, Respect, Care, Beliefs, and Co-operation.
Skills for life
In Hackney & Tower Hamlets we have over 1000 members (and are growing faster than at any point in the last 50 years.)
0.1% of the population might not sound like a lot - but it means:
An Explorer can step in to save a man choking on the street because of the Emergency Aid badge;
A Beaver knew his parents' mobile number from doing the Communicator badge after getting lost in a shopping centre;
A Scout knows how to operate the washing machine, set the thermostat and cook for themselves from doing their Skills Challenge;
Cubs know how to sew their own badges on!
