Welcome by the District Commissioner

Scouting is the largest youth organisation in the London Borough of Lewisham. We have 28 Scout Groups and 8 Explorer Scout Units in our District, providing everyday adventure for young people aged 6-25 every single night of the week.

At our Annual Census in January 2016, we registered 1215 youth members. Including all adults supporting Scouting, there are now over 1500 people involved in Scouting in Lewisham. One of our strengths is the willingness of our adult members to join in and support our youth members. Our youth members represent the diversity of the Lewisham Borough and, together, enjoy taking part in the Scouting adventure.

Please take some time to view our website – there’s a load of information here for anyone interested in Scouting, about the activities our sections take part in, useful downloads for leaders, and an opportunity for you to stay connected with what we get up to. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see what we’ve been getting up to!
