About us

Welcome to the online presence of Scouting in West London, covering the London Boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, and part of the City of Westminster.

Our District delivers Scouting in the very heart of London, and is proud of the diversity that brings. Our District includes communities as far North as East Acton, White City and Ladbroke Grove, and runs all the way South to the River Thames. It Covers Fulham, Chelsea and Pimlico, Shepherds Bush and Notting Hill, to name just a few places!

Some of our Groups have been running from the very earliest days of Scouting, and we pride ourselves in the way we are able to provide excellent quality Scouting to all young people in West London, offering them “Everyday Adventure” to develop as individuals and to help them make a positive contribution to our Society.

Scouting is open to all young people aged between 6 and 25 years old. It is supported by an excellent team of adult volunteers who, week by week, make Scouting happen! Today, it extends way beyond the traditional view of outdoor activities and bush-craft, though of course these activities remain as central to the movement as they ever were. Scouting is about providing young people with the opportunities to explore, see the world, enrich themselves, learn new skills and interact with people of all backgrounds. It is dynamic, fun and fulfilling; if you want your child to see more than they can on a mobile phone screen, we will give them every opportunity to try!

On this site, you will find information about the work we do, the events and activities happening across our District, as well as news and information about your nearest Scout Group. You can also found out how you can support Scouting in West London, by donating or volunteering.

Whatever your age, there will always be a welcome for you at West London Scout District!

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
