Our Leadership

East London Scouts is the body responsible for Scouting in the London boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets, run by two sets of volunteers:

  • The District Team made up of leaders who support our groups to deliver amazing activities and skills for life every week.

  • The Trustees who form our Executive Committee overseeing the administration and enabling the District Team to do their jobs.


Please read before getting in touch.
Complaints will not be accepted unless you have already spoken to those involved and have attempted to reach an informal resolution.

Complaints about Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs or Scouts should be directed to your Group Scout Leader.

Appeals about the Group Scout Leader, Explorer Scout Commissioner, or any other District Volunteer should be made to the District Commissioner
