Scouting changes lives by offering fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, and the chance to make a positive impact in our communities. Scouting is the UK’s largest mixed youth organisation with over half a million members across the UK.
How do I sign my son/daughter up?
We are one of the most popular groups in the area and have to operate a waiting list. We take in as many children as we can each term and run the sections at maximum capacity but unfortunately we have to disappoint some. We recommend that you apply to other groups in the area as well as us.
It is never too early to apply to our waiting list. We operate one waiting list for whole Scout Group, so if your child is unsuccessful and not offered a place at Beavers, they’ll remain on the list for Cubs and Scouts.
Please email your son or daughter’s full name, DOB, details of any special or additional needs as well as a contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org. We don’t usually acknowlege these emails – if your email has been delivered your child(ren) are on our waiting list!
If your child has a disabilty or additional need you may find the following information from the Scout Association of interest. You must provide details of any disabilities or additional needs in your email.
The Scout Association is committed to being inclusive of all young people, regardless of ability or disability and has a clear Equal Opportunities Policy. There is flexibility within Scouting and all Scout groups should make reasonable adjustments wherever possible to support the inclusion of young people with disabilities or additional needs. Scouting is delivered by adult volunteers and is not a statutory provision (such as the education system, for example); however we endorse systems of supporting our volunteers with inclusion. We encourage local volunteers to meet with the parents/carers of the young person to discuss their individual needs and plan support strategies. In some locations, there are also volunteers specialising in supporting inclusion. However, despite this and the best efforts of our volunteers, there may be situations where a particular Group does not have the capacity or resources to meet the needs of a young person or make the reasonable adjustments necessary. In such instances, local volunteers can work with the parents/carers, to find an alternative Group.
