We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.


Our Group Administrator manages the waiting list and movements within the Scout Group. 1st Shiremoor Scout Group is a popular and successful group, and it is normal for our Sections within the group to run at full capacity. As a result, entry numbers to all sections must be managed.

When places become available in any of our Sections, priority will be given to those who have been on the waiting list the longest and places are allocated in the following order of priority:

1. Children of leaders and executive committee members with key roles. Our priority is to provide enthusiastic adult leadership in each section enabling us to run a balanced and exciting programme for our young people. We are always recruiting new leaders and therefore offer priority to children of leaders and committee members.
2. Siblings of Beavers, Cubs or Scouts currently enrolled
3. Members of another Scout Group (Outside of the District) moving into the Area
4. Anyone else on the waiting list.

You can add your child to the waiting list by completing the form at the link below.
