Building Skills for life

         What we do

Scouting in Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Much Hadham provides fun, challenge and adventure to over 1000 young people aged 6 to 25 and is growing. 


We help provide young people with skills for life and encourage them to do more, learn more and be more.

Each week UK Scouting gives over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.


Young people experience teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and olympians.


We believe in bringing people together, celebrating diversity and standing against intolerance. We are a worldwide movement over over 30 million, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

Interested in volunteering in your community?

Each week, in Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Much Hadham we help over 1000 young people a week develop the skills to succeed in life. But this can only happen thanks to our brilliant volunteers.

Volunteering is much easier than you think. Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we have loads of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis.

Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace and further education. We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout or know how to light a fire!

You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.
