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, and 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 that when a man is choking on Mare St in Hackney it's a nearby Explorer Scout who steps in to save his life, a Beaver Scout who loses his parents in a shopping centre has the mental resiliency to get help and knows his parents mobile number, a Scout knows how to operate the washing machine and cook for themselves, and a Cub Scout knows how to sew their own badges on!

Aged 6 - 14?

Beaver, Cub & Scout groups meet on every night of the week across the area.
